"The Harp" by Augusta Savage. Exhibited in the court of the Contemporary Arts building where it received much acclaim. The sculpture depicted a group of twelve stylized black singers in graduated heights that symbolized the strings of the harp. The sounding board was formed by the hand and arm of God, and a kneeling man holding music represented the foot pedal. No funds were available to cast The Harp, nor were there any facilities to store it. After the fair closed it was demolished.

David Smith, Hudson River Landscape. David Smith was an Abstract Expressionist artist. He’s best known for creating large steel sculptures. After World War II, his art helped open up new possibilities for sculpture in America. His sculptures combined the techniques of American industry with the aesthetics of European modernism.One of his most famous sculptures is called Hudson River Landscape. In 1950, Smith had to take a series of ten train rides between Albany and Poughkeepsie New York. The trip was 75 miles each way and the train tracks ran right alongside the Hudson River for much of the trip. While he rode these trips, Smith made a series of sketches as he looked out the train window at the Hudson River and the riverbanks, working on ideas for a new sculpture. On one trip, he was shaking up a bottle of India ink when it spilled out all over his hand. He looked at his ink stained hand, placed it on his sketch paper, and the image left on the paper gave him the idea for the sculpture that became Hudson River Landscape. Because of the title, you might think it’s easy look at the sculpture and see realistic, literal images of water, riverbanks, and trees. But, remember, the sculpture is abstract. So it’s impossible to identify its shapes exactly. The shapes in the sculpture represent Smith’s impressions, gathered on his train trips along the Hudson, and then expressed in his favorite medium, steel. Anyone experiencing Smith’s Hudson River Landscape is of course free to interpret the meanings of the shapes in any way. Maybe the sculpture represents a static representation of what it looked like out the train window. Or maybe it represents Smith’s feelings and emotions as he rode. Here’s how Smith wrote about the work: “The total is a unity of symbolized reality, which to my mind is far greater reality than the river scene… Is my work Hudson River Landscape, the Hudson River, or is it the travel, the vision, the ink spot? Or does it matter? The sculpture exists on its own. It is the entity. The name is an affectionate designation of the point prior to travel. My objective was not these words or the Hudson River, but to create the existence of a sculpture. Your response may not travel down the Hudson River, but it may travel on any river, or on a higher level.”
