Steven Urry (1939-1993), born in Chicago, had a brilliant career as an artist constructing abstract welded steel and aluminum sculptures of biomorphic forms.


Urry also lived and worked in San Francisco, New York, Miami, and Arizona. He first drew serious attention in 1966 during his first solo show of large-scale welded steel sculptures in Chicago.

Today, Urry is known and respected by older generations of artists, but his work is rarely seen.

A public reception with refreshments will be held on opening night from 5-8 p.m.

The Koehnline Museum of Art, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines, is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
