The MAG’s benches by Wendell Castle are the rare artworks in the museum that visitors are encouraged to touch. Run your hands along the smooth wood and sit down to contemplate other works nearby or just to rest.

This bench was originally part of a dining room suite commissioned by the Baker family of Rochester. The artist used a technique called stack lamination, in which planks of wood are stacked and glued together, then carved and joined to create the final form.

[Summer 2015]

Provenance
Commissioned from the artist by Douglas Baker and Family, Rochester, NY, 1966; purchased by the Gallery in 2002
