Gund made “Flukes” after a pod of whales beached near his house in Nantucket. He pushed on their tails to try to get them back into the ocean. Though he has lost his sight, he continues to create artwork and based this sculpture on his memory and the texture of the tails. Gund donated “Flukes” to the university in 2016, the alma mater of his two sons.
