PENTWATER STUDENTS “POP ART” SCULPTURES ON DISPLAY
Students in the 3-Dimensional Art and Design Course at Pentwater High School inspired by the larger-than-life Pop Art sculpture of Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen created their own unique works this spring.
These works are on display in the Performance Hall lobby of the Ludington Area Center for the Arts through Aug. 31.
The students, in grades 9-12, worked collaboratively on a single work of art or a grouping of works. Each piece is an ordinary, everyday object monumentalized in papier mache sculpture and tempera paint. The subjects range from a Nike tennis shoe to a toilet, French fries to a box of sushi.
“The work shows a ‘Pop’ or color, fun and American Culture,” states Carrie Jeruzal, K-12 art educator at Pentwater Public School. “These pieces will make you smile.”
She explains that a favorite in the exhibit is The Giant Donut. At approximately three feet wide, it’s a show stopper complete with frosting and sprinkles. “Food was a common inspiration to my high schoolers as many of the pieces are inspired by tasty treats.”
The Ludington Area Center for the Arts is located at 107 S. Harrison St. in downtown Ludington. The Center is open Tuesdays-Fridays from 11am-4pm and Saturdays from 12-3pm. Exhibits are free and open to the public; donations are appreciated.
