Sonja Thomsen’s (Milwaukee) photographs and installations are designed to manipulate the ephemeral qualities of light. Her vibrant photographs, immersive photographic murals, and multifaceted metallic sculptures refract and reflect light. Thomsen will be exhibiting a new light-reflecting sculpture designed specifically for the Arts Center’s Glass Gallery, creating a place to observe and revel in light.

Our gratitude is extended to The Frank G. and Frieda K. Brotz Family Foundation, Sargento Foods Inc., and the Herzfeld Foundation for major support of this exhibition and to the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding also was provided by the members of the Exhibitions & Collections Giving Circle. In addition, Arts Center programs are made possible by the generous support of its members.
