Michael Dunbar: Explorations in Space

October 4, 2012 - May 4, 2014

Hurand Sculpture Courtyard FIA Grounds

For more than 30 years, Michael Dunbar has been creating monumental abstract sculptures of steel and bronze. The meticulously created works with their arcs, planes and beams, resemble giant gears and equipment with gleaming surfaces and precise attention to detail. The sculptures have the appearance of machines waiting to be set in motion. Six of these large works by Dunbar can be seen on the FIA grounds through next summer.

Additionally, an exhibition of 10 smaller sculptures by Dunbar was installed in the FIA Contemporary Gallery. These smaller works were created by Dunbar as studies for larger sculptures and was on display from November 11 to December 16, 2012.
