Miami-based artist Santiago Medina’s sculpture titled, “Infinity” has been accepted into the permanent collection of the Tisch Library at Tufts University in Greater Boston, MA. The sculpture is inspired by the infinite number of knowledge quests that humans have and the importance of Universities that pursue the answers. “Infinity” is made with highly-polished Italian stainless steel and displays in its organic sculptoric form, the infinite symbol. The sculpture measures 24 inches in height by 12 x 10 inches. Medina’s work will be officially received by the University at an unveiling ceremony on Friday, May 15, 2015.
Medina’s sculptures can also be found in the permanent collection of other top universities as well as exhibited permanently in public spaces in the USA and abroad. He is the only Colombian-American sculptor to have a permanent monumental sculpture at Harvard University.
Also a neuroradiologist and pediatric radiologist, Medina distinctively uses advanced Computerized Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to scan his sculptures and subsequently enhance the volumetric appeal and sculptoric form.
