Summer Art Camps

Summer Art Camp at the Museum is a must for any child age 8 to 18.  In it’s 12th year, the Summer Art Camp program sells itself because participants want to come back year after year.  Every student becomes an artist for a week, and every student is nurtured and encouraged by highly skilled art educators.   Look at the photos from previous year’s Summer Art Camps and you will see why your child will want to be a part of this creative life-changing experience.

Lee Sung-Kuen: Interconnections exhibition

Building a bridge between man and nature, Sung-Kuen’s work is a perfect illustration of the concept of vital energy (Qi), which is omnipresent in the artistic culture of Eastern Asia. He creates sculptures of primordial shapes that, at first sight, evoke human cells or the notion of fertility. Made out of entangled piano wires, which the artist sometimes brightens up with vivid colors; they establish a dialogue between fullness and emptiness while sustaining the resonance of their initial role. Once suspended in air, the vibrating play of light on the sculptures, and the apparent fusion with their surroundings into one symbiotic unity, bring the ovoid shapes to life.

Curated by Kate Shin.
