Sculpture by Francine Survilo in 7th Biennial Sculpture Exhibition

Francine Survilo has had her sculpture, "Thus We Shall Walk,"  accepted into the 7th Biennial Indoor Sculpture Exhibition sponsored by the City of Santa Clara and its Cultural Advisory Commission.
There will be an opening reception for the public to meet the artists on September 28, 2:00- 4:00 pm.  Award presentations will be held at 3:00 pm.
The show in Santa Clara City Hall, 1500 Warburton Ave (across from the Triton Museum of Art) will be on display from September 28 through February 28, 2014.
Exhibition hours are 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.  Closed on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays.  For more information, call (408) 615-2210.
The title for this bronze comes from a poem by Yves Bonnefoy. 
Thus We Shall Walk
Thus we shall walk on the ruins of a vast sky,
The distant landscape will come into fullness
Like a destiny in the vivid light.
The long-sought most beautiful country
Will lie out before us --land of the salamanders.
Death is in it.
This is the secret lamp burning under our gestures,
Thus we walk lighted.
