Some artists like to use a paintbrush. Abstract expressionist sculptor Mark di Suvero likes to use a crane. The monumental Iroquis is crafted of red steel I-beams that are indicative of the artist’s passion for using industrial materials and tools. The 40-foot sculpture features open spaces that invite you to view it from multiple angles and to actively participate. Iroquis is one of many di Suvero works made of steel and that required a crane to create.
