$7,500 toward the exhibition Scott Burton Furniture, organized by museum curator Jeffrey Kipnis. Orginally an art critic, Burton began his exploration of functional sculpture by arranging and combining furniture found on the street. His later and best known work was influenced by Russian Constructivism, De Stijl and the Bauhaus, and used materials such as stone, steel and acrylic to explore the intersection of design, furniture, architecture and sculpture.
