We just learned about the sculpture Caterpillar by Norman Carlberg.

Another famous American sculpture is Bronze Gate by Robert Morris made in 2005 in Pistoia Italy.

Robert Morris was born in Missouri, and went to the University of Kansas to learn about art.

He was famous for the minimalist kind of art that was used very simple shapes to make interesting art.
Morris was also famous for performance art, and land art.

His sculpture of Bronze Gate is an arch made of steel outside a hospital in Italy.
