Florida Museum Receives Monumental Louise Nevelson Installation
Dawn’s Forest has been part of a corporate collection since it was created in the 1980s.
NAPLES, FL.- The Naples Museum of Art in Florida has received, through a generous corporate gift, Louise Nevelson’s largest sculpture installation and her last major work, Dawn’s Forest.

Commissioned and owned by Georgia-Pacific LLC and MetLife for the Georgia-Pacific Center in Atlanta, Dawn’s Forest has been part of a corporate collection since it was created in the 1980s and has never been shown in a museum setting. It is Nevelson’s largest and most complex sculptural environment, containing elements culled from previous works dating to 1971. The Naples Museum of Art will unveil the monumental installation, which consists of a dozen individual sculptures, in October.

“We are honored and grateful to be the recipient of this important work and to show it to the world,” said Naples Museum of Art founder Myra Janco Daniels. “It’s a perfect fit for our museum, which specializes in American modernism.”

Nevelson (1899-1988) was one of the most important and influential figures in postwar American art. She was also the most internationally celebrated woman artist of her time. Her work continues to inspire contemporary sculptors today and is represented in hundreds of museums and private collections around the world.

“Dawn’s Forest has been a central piece of our headquarters building for over 20 years and we are excited that the piece will become a permanent exhibit of the Naples Museum of Art,” said Jim Hannan, CEO and president of Georgia-Pacific LLC. “Louise Nevelson was such an important figure in American art and we are pleased to help others discover her work.”

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia-Pacific is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and marketers of building products, tissue, packaging, paper, cellulose and related chemicals. The company creates long-term value by using resources efficiently to provide innovative products and solutions that meet the needs of customers and society, while operating in a manner that is environmentally and socially responsible and economically sound.
