Entangled is an abstract sculpture created by Indiana-based artist Brose Partington (American b. 1979). The sculpture is located on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus at the Herron School of Art and Design, 735 W. New York Street in Indianapolis, Indiana in the United States. It was given to Herron by the Honorable Ezra Freidlander and Linda H. Freidlander in 2005.

Entangled is an abstract sculpture consisting of eight unique elements bolted together to create an enclosed form. The powder coated steel sculpture measures 108” x 88” x 98” and is constructed from rolled steel tubes and fabricated steel circles. The base of the sculpture is mounted on a 16′ diameter concrete pad in the Herron Sculpture Garden.[2] The curved support structure at the base of the sculpture references the shape of a bird’s nest as it encloses and supports the sculptural elements.

The Freidlander donors contributed to the funding for a sculpture competition open to upper level Herron students. Partington’s maquette of Entangled won the competition. The sculpture was located on their private property from 2004–2008. It was moved to its current location on the IUPUI campus in 2008.
