WAM Exhibits

One of the themes at the WAM re-opening was "Sympathies: Producing, Experiencing, Interpreting Art".  The goal of the sympathies series is to explore the relevance of the museum collections in the twenty-first century.
Sharon Louden and Eun-Kyung Suh, two contemporary artists, had major art exhibits on display.  Louden worked off the theme of the building's metal exterior and created a vast number of aluminum-slashing strips that were curled in the "Merge"exhibit.

Eun-Kyung Suh of Seoul, Korea and Duluth, Minnesota developed a large exhibit, "Anchae", which incorporated images on cotton onto sheets of silk cloth. Anchae refers to the primary section of a Korean home, which was a comfortable place for rearing of children and conducting family life.
