Beverly Pepper (born 1922) is a pioneering sculptor known for her monumental works,site specific and land art. Independent from any particular art movement, she is a world renowned artist whose brilliant and prolific career has spanned over forty years.

Pepper is also known for her site-specific projects in which she has incorporated expanses of industrial metals into the landscape, creating large-scale sculptures that were often designed to function as public spaces.
