CLEVELAND, Ohio - Chicago artist Tony Tasset said he first bought his wife flowers and made dinner reservations before asking her to stick her right hand in a bucket of goo for the greater glory of art.
So began the process of creating a monumental, 7-ton sculpture of his wife's hand for installation in June at Toby's Plaza outside the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland as part of the FRONT International Cleveland Triennial of Contemporary Art.
