“. . . one thing the Whitney Annual does show: wherever it may be going, American sculpture at this moment is explorative as sculpture has never been before, anywhere.” —The New York Times

“. . . this is a survey of American sculpture at the moment, including curious things called ‘sculpture’ for need of calling them something. There are some appalling items on display, both avant-garde and old guard, but the over-all impression is that American sculpture today has an explorative vitality that stimulates every kind of invention.” —The New York Times
