Frank Stella in Boston

One of the most iconic figures that emerged from the post-World War II American art, Frank Stella played a major role in writing out one of the most important chapters in 20th-century art. His seminal piece Damascus Gate (Stretch Variation I) from 1970, a combination of abstract geometric compositions containing colorful squares and circles, that intersect in one of three patterns forming a symmetrical base, arrived in the form of a mural at Boston Seaport. Stella was commissioned by Seaport to create one of the largest public installations in his career and the whole project was overseen by Justkids.
