Location Description
The sculpture is located in the central portion of the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.

“Marriage” is one of Smith’s important early large-scale works and masterfully combines abstract geometric forms with human characteristics. Formally, “Marriage” offers an arch for the viewer to pass through, and presents a dialogue between the various connecting rectangular blocks. The work’s title, a dominant cultural institution, implies a specific interpretation for the sculpture.
