9. Kimbell 362 reduced-1

"Woman Addressing the Public: Project for a Monument", 1981, Joan Miro, Kimbell Art Museum, 1972, Louis Kahn, 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd., Cultural District. Joan Miro's large abstract bronze sculpture greets the visitor outside the entrance of the masterpiece Louis Kahn building. The sculpture was cast in an edition of four in Verona, Italy in 1981. A Renzo Piano-designed addition to the museum is underway and projected to be completed in 2013.  Piano has made a career of designing notable museums throughout the world and was the logical choice for Kimbell expansion project--he was working in the architectural offices of Louis Kahn when the Kimbell was on the drawing board.
