The Michener Art Museum commissioned the casting of the sculpture Together from the resin mold used to produce Selma Burke’s original 1975 bronze bas-relief, owned by Hill House Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The work, which depicts a male and female nude holding an infant between their bodies, focuses on family love and unity, a theme found in many of Burke’s works.
