Where can I find 'Metaphysics in Marble'?

Since it's still under copyright, someone would have to literally send the article to your person.

But, you can get it yourself for $60 or so.

Summary and excerpt:

Amazon purchase:

http://www.amazon.com/Objectivist-1966-1971-Ayn-Rand/dp/1561141488/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1312554740&sr=8-1

These were the top Google results. "Search is a friend of mine."

Or, if you can get an Objectivist CD-ROM with all of Rand's published works, it is likely on the CD also.

"Metaphysics in Marble" by Mary Ann Sures (scroll down for a brief bio) was published in The Objectivist. Part 1 is in the February 1969 issue, and part 2 is in the March 1969 issue. Perhaps there are back issues.

From the beginning of part 1:

"Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgements." (Ayn Rand, "The Psycho-Epistemology of Art," The Objectivist Newsletter, April 1965.)

Given the definition of art, one often hears the question of how metaphysical abstractions can be conveyed in a visual art such as sculpture.

This discussion is a brief historical survey to answer that question: to indicate the means by which sculpture expresses abstractions—and to demonstrate the connection between the dominant philosophy of a given era and its sculpture."

Online Indexes for three Objectivist periodicals:

The Objectivist Newsletter - published monthly from January 1962 to December 1965.

The Objectivist - published monthly from January 1966 To September 1971.

The Ayn Rand Letter - published monthly from October 1971 to February 1976.

It is not a Rand (or Peikoff) authored work, so it is not present on the CD.
