The Technicolor Heart (The Big One), 2004
(American, born 1935)
Location: Washington State University,
- ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Artist Jim Dine combined bronze and oil enamel to create The Technicolor Heart (The Big One) , which he refers to as a "double sided painting," covered in hand tools and inspired by his earliest memories of work. After the Virginia Tech shooting (April 16, 2007), the artwork was surrounded by small white hearts that were placed by Washington State University students as a spontaneous memorial to that tragic event. This is the power of public art. It enlivens our public spaces and acts as a point of conversation and connection.
This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Washington State University.
