Standing beside the softly-curving form of Bea Blue, it is possible to see all six outdoor sculptures in Girl Group at once. Dawn and Maiden May stand sentinel by the Museum Building, Rapunzel looks out over the hillside, and As April and Midnight carry the eye down the allée towards the South Fields. The siting of these new works, as chosen by Shechet, ensures that the viewer is always experiencing more than one work at a time. Shechet says, “The idea of Girl Group is that each sculpture functions as a solo and as a member of an ensemble. I was thinking about their relationship with each other from the beginning, but also working the sightlines throughout the landscape.”
