Point of Interest Details

This steel and granite piece is by artist Jim Huntington, gifted in 1981 by Janet Anderson and Roger Abrahams (from 1980-1986, Abrahams was a professor of Humanities and Anthropology at Scripps and Pitzer). Huntington was born in Indiana, and worked in California as well as New York. He started working with stone in the mid 1970s, and in 1978 he started using granite, which he has continued to use for most of his pieces. His work can be found in museums in Massachusetts, Texas, Nebraska, New York, and Australia. Abraham’s Column creates an imposing figure, rising like a calcified tree trunk amidst the olive trees.
