"Oh Yeah"- A New Park Acquisition
Hamilton, OH - Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum is excited to announce its recent acquisition of Bret Price’s sculpture, “Oh Yeah” (2012).
The acquisition of “Oh Yeah” was made possible by Craig Johnson and is donated to the park “in gratitude from the Johnson family for the joy our three children Barrett, Jordan and Madeline have brought to our lives.” The piece is Pyramid Hill’s first 2020 acquisition and brings Pyramid Hill’s permanent sculpture collection to a total of 71 pieces. “Oh Yeah” is currently installed and on view at the park.
“The entire Pyramid Hill staff, board, and I are honored that Bret Price chose our park as the permanent home for Oh Yeah, a monumental galvanized steel sculpture,” explains Sean FitzGibbons, Executive Director of Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum. “Adding Oh Yeah, a sculpture created by an internationally renowned artist, to the park’s collection brings a renewed freshness to the park. Additionally, I think it is extremely important to highlight Bret’s regional Ohio connection. Working with him on this donation I had the privilege of visiting his studio space in New Bremen, Ohio. I got to see how he heats, bends, twists, and ties these enormous steel pieces into magnificent sculptures.”
Bret Price is a contemporary steel sculptor, with a particular interest in the challenges of raw material against forces of nature. Price’s main objective is to convey a sense of unexpected movement and balance in his work. His work is in many public and private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Asia, notably the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Pepsico Collection in New York. Price lives and works between Orange County, CA and New Bremen, OH
