Gary Hume’s “Front of Snowman” is a 10-foot-tall abstraction. It has the traditional three-snowball shape, each one painted a soft blue. The piece is formally on display today.

Hume is known for making large re-creations of everyday objects. He came to prominence painting life-size representations of hospital doors. Since then, he’s created many “snowmen.”

The snowman will be on display through winter into late May.
