Tony Cragg is credited with developing more possibilities in the making of sculpture than anyone since Henry Moore. He is known for experimenting with and exhausting the limits of various materials, utilizing found objects, and juxtaposing unlikely combinations of materialsbronze, steel, plastic, rubber, glass, wood, plaster, and more. His outlook is marked by an interest in analyzing the relations between the materials, science, and the body. This can be seen in the two major sculptures by Cragg in the Art Centers care: Untitled (Conch Shell), 1988, is a highlight in the Art Centers permanent collection and Order, 1989, is featured in the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park.
