Going, going, gone

Going, Going, Gone

On view in the Glen Vista Gallery through January 22, 2023
Going, Going, Gone is a new solo exhibition by multidisciplinary artist and environmentalist Kristina Sheufelt. Sheufelt is based in Detroit, Michigan, and recently received her MFA from the University of Michigan’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design. In Going, Going, Gone, Sheufelt uses a variety of media to examine themes of loss and absence in the natural world. In Sheufelt’s practice, an ever-evolving hybrid of art-making, conservation work, and contemplative studies, the psychological landscape of loss is a fluid space, a site of exchange in which human concerns and environmental concerns are deeply entangled, each informing and impacting the other.

Heron Sculpture

Sculpture Tour

Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Arboretum on a self-guided Sculpture Tour.  Some are easy to find, such as the beautiful marble “Snowy Owl” by Paul Keeslar.  Others, like Robert Cumpston’s “Squirrel,” are a bit more of a fun challenge … see if you can find his hiding place!
Stop in to Guest Services for a copy of the Sculpture Tour brochure. Online version coming soon!
