Donald Cooper Article Summary April 14, 2010 “Creative Problems in The Art Gallery” Martin Puryear is an artist who creates sculptures out of wood, stone, tar, wire and other materials. Puryear’s sculptures are very abstract and have a sense of strength and elegance with the construction of the wood and wires. There’s also a lot of movement with the lines and shapes in his pieces even though they lack color. For a lot of Puryear’s artwork there is a deeper meaning through various symbols. A lot of Puryear’s artwork is stationed on the sixth floor mall of the Museum of Modern Art. The article discusses the problems that the mall creates for Puryear’s gallery. One problem is that the items being sold on the wall of the museum take away from the pieces by giving the gallery a sense that there is a price on some of Puryear’s beautiful pieces. Another problem with the area where Puryear’s pieces are located is that the room is very plain and boring not really bringing out the true strengths of Puryear’s artwork.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
