Sebastian Smee of The Boston Globe writes, "At the deCordova, meanwhile, we’ve begun to see some major changes. There are new, big-name works in the sculpture park, displayed to better (and less crowded) effect. And the exhibitions have been impressive. Both the Chakaia Booker and Leonardo Drew shows were bold, uplifting forays into contemporary sculpture, and the 2010 DeCordova Biennial was brilliant. Over the next year or two, I expect the DeCordova to establish a national reputation as one of America’s most dynamic venues for contemporary sculpture — not just a great place to take the kids on a sunny Sunday."
