Submitted by Oakton Community College

Steven Urry (1939-1993) had a brilliant career as an artist constructing abstract welded steel and aluminum sculptures of biomorphic forms. View his life's work at an exhibition that runs May 10 -- July 19 at Oakton Community College's Koehnline Museum of Art in Des Plaines.

"Steven Jay Urry: A Retrospective" presents his sculptures, drawings, paintings, and experimental pieces in the context of his time. Born in Chicago, Urry also lived and worked in San Francisco, New York, Miami, and Arizona. He first drew serious attention in 1966 during his first solo show of large-scale welded steel sculptures in Chicago. Today, his work is rarely seen -- and no show of his entire career has ever been mounted.
