An "aria" is an elaborate melody sung by one voice. Alexander Liberman's Aria seems to suggest music notes, lines of a music staff or interlocking sounds with the color red unifying the composition. This sculpture of painted steel stands at 42 feet tall. Liberman created a composition of strong vertical elements combined with rounded, organic forms. Concurrently with a distinguished career in publishing, Liberman was actively engaged as an artist, where he painted, created photographs and sculpted.
