Leonard Drew: Number 197

M.H. de Young Museum

Using off-the-shelf-materials and the occasional found object, Drew produces pieces whose metaphorical power is located within his labor-intensive manipulation of materials and the spatial dynamics of his compositions. For the de Young, Drew has conceived of the expansive installation Number 197. Spanning three walls in the museum's atrium, it comprises a multitude of sculptural elements created and arranged in response to the unique context of the de Young's landmark architecture. Number 197 is installed in one of the de Young's public spaces; no admission required.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Leonard Drew: Number 197 :

Visible in the museum’s monumental atriums, this work is technically situated in public space and is free to view without admission. The work occupies three massive walls and is produced through a grid-series arrangement of found objects and readily available materials, manipulated and arranged in response to the de Young’s unique architecture.
