"U Tube Light" Sculpture by Christopher Sproat

About

A fantastic light sculpture comprising an elongated U-shaped white neon tube held within a three-sided Plexiglas frame mounted on a painted steel base. Sproat designed a series of these in the late 1960s all with different color neon tubing. A Boston native, Sproat has been creating light sculptures since the early sixties and started using neon around 1965. He's exhibited his works in museums such as Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Whitney Museum of American Art. American, circa 1965.
