Great story (& in WSJ). There is a documentary film on di Suvero called North Star that features a soundtrack by Philip Glass (one of his first)As an album, it was one of the first attempts to market Glass to a wider audience as most of the tracks are under five minutes and feature the more melodic style of his later career.And Glass is a great jazz fine, of Coltrane in particular, with the use of saxophones a hallmark of the music of his ensembles

At the entrance of the famous Kröller Müller Museum in my hometown Arnhem in the Netherlands is also a beautiful sculpture from him.

My wife and I visited the Storm King Arts Center this summer and were blown away by Mark's work.
