Artist: Olga de Amaral Construction: Wool Location: W. Dale Clark Library, 4th floor Donated by: Union Pacific Installed: 1977
Olga de Amaral, an internationally renowned Colombian textile artist, created the 3-dimensional textile
sculpture located on the 4th floor of the W. Dale Clark Library. Union Pacific donated the sculpture
in 1977 upon completion of the new Main Library.
Amaral's work originated as small, playful tapestries which gradually emerged into the monolithic
style seen in her later pieces. These large abstract works create their own presence. Her signature use of somber colors and textured wool in a layered pattern characterize
Olga de Amaral's mature technique.
