Girl Standing in Nature
Segal studied painting, then began to use plaster strips (the kind doctors use to make casts for broken bones) to make sculptures of his family and friends. He is best known for his sculptures that capture one moment in time and show ordinary people in everyday situations. This is the third work by Segal to be added to the permanent collection along with Woman in an Armchair and Neysa, both located in the main building.
