In Incomplete Conch Shell sculptor Jack Zajac draws inspiration from the natural world. Blending traditions of surrealist and romanticist art, Incomplete Conch Shell bisects the marine shell’s central chamber with blunt geometry. The marble form is displayed on a circular pedestal on the west lawn of the Civic Center. Both organic and abstract, the curvaceous work sits in strong contrast to the geometric architecture of City Hall.
Incomplete Conch Shell was purchased for the newly opened Inglewood Civic Center with funds made available through the Art-in-Architecture Program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
