Curtis Jere Central Park patinated brass wall sculpture. Though the name Curtis Jere is familiar to many as the maker of ebullient and eccentric modern design from the 1960s and 1970s, relatively few are aware that it is a pseudonym for the design team of Curtis Freiler and Jerry Fels. The work of Curtis Jere displays a sense of playfulness and curiosity. Freiler and Fels had a masterful ability to work with different materials, such as patinated brass and brilliant chrome. This piece is a perfect example of their skills.
