STOCKBRIDGE, MASS.- Elemental Matters: The Sculpture of Jonathan Prince, is on view July 1 - October 24, 2022 at Chesterwood. Featuring 12 monumental outdoor sculptures by Prince, Elemental Matters is Chesterwood's 44th annual contemporary sculpture show.

A site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Chesterwood is the former summer home and studio of sculptor Daniel Chester French in Stockbridge, MA. French (1850-1931), best known for his statue of Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

Born in New York City, Jonathan Prince is an American artist known for his monumental sculptures fabricated from steel and stone that explore the human connection between our inner and outer selves. Prince’s artworks are uniquely influenced by his background in science, technology and medicine. Having received a doctorate from Columbia University and founding various technology companies, he is also a holder of several scientific patents. Prince’s first museum show ‘The Hologlobe’ in 1996 at the Smithsonian Institution merged the worlds of art and technology and was funded by the National Science Foundation, DARPA and NASA. At the heart of his sculptures, he strives to show the beauty that can exist in the breaks and that can emerge from chaos. Prince continuously pushes the boundaries of how materials can behave, as well as pushing the limits of what the human hand can accomplish.

Chesterwood, a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is the former summer home, studio, and gardens of America’s foremost sculptor of public monuments, Daniel Chester French (1850 - 1931). French is best known for his sculptures of the Minute Man (1871 - 75) and the seated figure of Abraham Lincoln (1911 - 22) for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Situated on 122 acres in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Chesterwood is recognized as both a National Historic Landmark and a Massachusetts Historic Landmark.

Chesterwood is notably one of the earliest venues in the United States to showcase large-scale works in an outdoor setting. Since 1978, Chesterwood has exhibited sculpture by more than 600 emerging and established artists, including Leonard Baskin, Morgan Bulkeley, Herbert Ferber, Glenda Goodacre, Sol LeWitt, Albert Paley, George Rickey, and Richard Stankiewicz.
