We’re so excited to check out the newest Socrates Sculpture Park exhibitions, which open this Sunday, May 17th. The Living Pyramid, seen in progress above and rendered below, is a, “site-specific earthwork” and will, “span 30 feet at its four-sided base and ascend 30 feet high, created from several tons of soil and planted grasses.” Curious about the artists, Agnes Denes?
