    Ascending Birds

    Artist: David Von Schlegell
    Date: 1989
    Material: Aluminum
    Location: New Haven City Hall. 165 Church Street

    This abstract three-piece aluminum sculpture in the lobby of New Haven City Hall is Von Schelegell's last sculpture work. Ascending Birds is "an expression of the artist's life-long love of Matisse and explores the relation of abstraction to figuration, sculpture to painting and positive space to negative space."
