Artist & Connection Information

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park will be hosting an invitational exhibition "Highly Recommended: Emerging Sculptors." This exhibition surveys the complexities and diversity of sculpture today through the innovative efforts of developing sculptors. Working closely with the recommendations of established artists in the permanent collection of Meijer Gardens, the talents of promising new generations of sculptors from across the globe have been chosen to form a highly unique group exhibition.
