Richard Serra’s massive steel sculpture Sequence (2006) is one of the artist’s most monumental achievements. Owned by the Donald and Doris Fisher family, this sculpture comprises twelve steel plates and weighs a staggering 235 tons. Initially on loan to the Cantor from 2011 to 2015, Sequence returned to the Cantor’s North Lawn from SFMOMA in February 2019, where it is now on long-term view. Visitors are able to appreciate this work in its unique outdoor setting on Stanford’s campus.
