Four sculptures have been installed on Harvard Business School’s (HBS) campus in Boston as part of its ongoing contemporary sculpture program, which began in April 2016. A sculpture by Yinka Shonibare is a new addition to the C. Ludens Ringnes Sculpture Collection, a sculpture by Melvin Edwards, and two works by Thaddeus Mosley are on loan to the School for the 2021-22 exhibition. They join sculptures by Mary Frank, Jaume Plensa, John Safer, and Joel Shapiro in the School’s permanent collection.

“We’re excited to have works by these artists here on campus,” said Melissa Renn, collections manager, HBS Art and Artifacts Collection. “Their dynamic sculptures, sited on Schwartz Common where our whole community intersects and near the hub for Executive Education, which draws so many international participants, energize our outdoor spaces. It is a wonderful opportunity for the community to engage with works of art from around the world.”
