Mark Mennin: Written in Stone

Tuesday, Oct 4, 2022
Frederik Meijer Gardens

Within the PNC Portico, a marble colonnade features five recycled columns with carved Elizabethan ruff collars for capitals. The marble columns came from a 19th-century New York City building that was partially destroyed in the 1930s and buried in a New Jersey landfill. The “found” or repurposed stone in Mark Mennin’s fanciful colonnade literally has history inscribed in its form, along with the record of the stone’s own physical past. Additional sculpture will be featured in the Courtyard Level of the Welcome Center. Most of Mennin’s projects, including his carved beds, enlist reclaimed stone or recycled scrap and **** from various quarries.
