Over the summer, Dallas Nasher Sculpture Center has acquired it’s first taste of Texas art: gifts of significant pieces by pioneering Texas found-object assemblers Jim Love and David McMananway. Love’s Scoop Tailed Chef, an early welded steel assemblage, was donated by the Friends of Jim Love. Love’s Witch Doctor, and McManaway’s Ahab (1989) and Wonderful, then is the land… (1974), were donated by Nasher patron Elizabeth B. (Betty) Blake from her own collection.
