Serra Sculpture Park
Description: Serra Sculpture Park
Love it; hate it.
The installation of Richard Serra's sculpture "Twain" in 1982 sparked the latest controversy in the history of criticism of public art in St. Louis parks.
And, like its predecessors, it remains in place despite calls for its removal.
"The Naked Truth" caused an uproar in 1914 when it was unveiled in Compton Reservoir Park and the figures in Aloe Plaza's "Meeting of the Waters" were criticized when built in 1940.
Serra called his work "Twain" but most St. Louisans refer to it as "The Serra Sculpture."
