From the press article in the Daily Herald:

"By the end of the year 2000, Meijer Gardens announced the acquisition of  a life-size "Eve", created by Auguste Rodin, one of the best-known and most-revered sculptors in the history of art. One of just 12 known full-scale bronze casts, it has been in a private collection in France since the 1920s and never before exhibited in public.

This news followed hard on the heels of the September 2000 opening of a 65,000-square-foot "Gardens of Art" expansion that more than doubles the size of the gardens. Among Meijer's attractions are a tropical conservatory lush with plants from five continents."

Kresge Art Museum, founded in 1959, houses Michigan State University's collection of more than 6,500 works of art.

Among the ten most important and popular pieces in the Kresge´s permanent collection is Rodin´s Figure Volante. This sculpture is another example of how Rodin presented a fragment - in this case the female torso from Avarice & Lust - as an autonomous work of art. By turning the body into a vertical position and isolating it from the male embrace, Rodin reached a completely contrary expression, suggesting freedom and weightlessness.
