Striking "Karma" sculpture craned into courtyard at Yellowstone Art Museum

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - A striking sculpture was installed in the courtyard at the Yellowstone Art Museum Monday morning.

The sculpture, entitled Karma, was crafted by the internationally renowned Korean artist Do Ho Suh.

Standing 23 feet tall and weighing 1,470 pounds of bronze and copper-plated steel, the work was craned in over the museum's roof and into the courtyard by WM Services Crane & Rigging.

Do Ho Suh's Karma is a statement about the generational tension that arises from the good and evil deeds done by our ancestors and how the responsibility of the past falls on the shoulders of those in the present, according to Robyn G. Peterson, executive director at Yellowstone Art Museum.

Peterson said the work was temporarily donated by an anonymous benefactor and will be exhibited in the museum's courtyard for about three months.
