Marvin and Helaine Lender Donate “Facing Couple”

The College of Arts and Sciences Pine Grove walkway has been graced this week by a sculpture by artist Itzik BenShalom. The work was previously held in the private collection of long-time Quinnipiac supporters Marvin and Helaine Lender, has been donated to the University.

The piece, a large casting in bronze, powerfully evokes the basic human need for interconnection and touch. It’s stark yet moving representation of two reclining human forms will create an interesting visual contrast with the vertical backdrop of the Grove’s tall pine trees.

“Facing Couple” has previously been on display at Grounds for Sculpture, a 42 acre outdoor sculpture park located in Hamilton, New Jersey. Other works by Itzik BenShalom are on permanent display in the Boca Raton Museum of Art in Florida.
