DETROIT (AP) — Pop artist Jim Dine says his new exhibition in Grand Rapids offers the broadest look in one showing at sculpture he's created over the past five decades.

"Jim Dine: Sculpture" opened Friday at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. The 75-year-old Cincinnati native's works fill all three of Meijer Gardens' gallery spaces.

Dine is better known for his paintings and graphic art. He tells The Associated Press in a telephone interview that his sculpture is more of a collaborative effort than his other art. Metal pieces, for example, are made with help from foundry artisans. But he notes they incorporate his work as a painter as well.

The exhibition looks at Dine's sculpture from the late 1950s to recent years. It runs through May 8.
