Korean Sculptor Seungmo Park

Large-scale portrait and landscape wire sculptures

You won’t look at a wire hanger the same way again after viewing contemporary Korean sculptor Seungmo Park’s fluid, detailed large-scale portrait and landscape wire sculptures.

A selection of Park’s work is on display through March 15 at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, 314 S. Park St., in an exhibition called Wired and Wrapped, which features pieces from his Maya series.

To help visitors engage with the exhibit, the KIA will hold a public tour from 6–7 p.m. Jan. 8 and a hands-on program from 6–7 p.m. Jan. 22.

The guided tour will explore the scale, detail and intricacy of Park’s work and include admission to the entire museum. The hands-on program — Wrap It! — will allow visitors to create wire-wrapped sculptures in the style of Park and take in a performance by DancExperiment Lab, a class of Education for the Arts students.
