Otterbein, OWU, Toledo, and Lourdes Start Off New Semester with Art

Many events flooded the AICUO EVA inbox throughout the holidays and into the new semester. As students return for Spring 2013, here are some events, exhibits, and notable artwork being shown at Ohio institutions.

Ohio Wesleyan University
Ross Art Exhibit displays Barry Gunderson, artist and professor at Kenyon College
January 15th-February 17th
Sculpture shown looks over a collection of  UMOs (Useless Metal Objects). Gunderson has created 50 of these pieces, and this is the first time that they will all be displayed in the same exhibit. His inspiration? "It's a geographical and mental journey." He has created works from his many travels, including England, France, throughout the Midwest, as well as his own fantastical dreamland.
To view Barry Gunderson's artwork, visit the Ross Art Museum in Delaware, Ohio. Open Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri, and Sunday. 
You can also view his work on his website, http://www.barrygunderson.com/umos.html

Gunderson has taught at Kenyon College since 1974. He lives and works in Gambier, Ohio.
