CONTINUUM: The Art of Michael Dunbar in the Sculptural Tradition
September 22–December 19, 2016
Many contemporary sculptors emphasize their self-conscious break from the art of the past. In contrast, Michael Dunbar acknowledges the roots and continuity of his style from the great masters. The exhibition Continuum: The Art of Michael Dunbar and the Sculptural Tradition, places the artist’s contemporary Machinist Studies series within the context of the history of sculpture of the Beaux-Arts, Realist, Figurative, Cubist, and Modernist styles as represented by exceptional examples from the David Owsley Museum of Art’s collection. Artist Talk planned for September 21.
