Tony Berlant is probably most famous for his sculptural "paintings", in which he nails found pieces of colored metals to a plywood base to form images. One of these works, called "Mountain Journey," is on view in the outer lobby of the museum. Later, Berlant became well known for using this technique to make small, house-shaped boxes. With a small slit for a coin hole, he transforms some of these sculptures into tzedakah boxes.
