Identity, Energy, and Communication: JinMan Jo

  • Location: FAC Main Gallery, 2nd Floor
  • Time: 8:00am - 4:30pm

For sculptor JinMan Jo, the process of creating his metal works reflects the complexities of life. Thick steel bends during forging and hammering. Thin wires worked together show interconnectedness, and weak materials, overlapping and supporting each other, become strong. Each piece makes an undeniable contribution to the whole. Working slowly and steadily, almost ceremoniously, JinMan Jo believes creating and viewing art are times of deep reflection. His work has been shown widely throughout the United States and Korea.  Sponsored by the Bramham Collins Fund

8:00am - 4:30pm
