The Wedding Dance, 2014

 

August 21–December 8, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 13, 2018, 6–8:00 p.m.
Evening with the Artist: Thursday, November 8, 2018, 6:00 p.m.

George Tobolowsky’s series of metal sculptures, A Long Road Back, range from abstract winding forms to representational subjects. The artist’s incorporation of bold colors and found metal scraps create delightfully unexpected outcomes that pay tribute to modernist sculpture. Tobolowsky’s works will be on display inside and around the Museum, as well as throughout Oxford and the UM campus.

The University of Mississippi Museum would like to thank Earl Dismuke for his assistance in securing site locations and installations of these outdoor works.
