Steve Feren: The Incredible Beingness of Light

February 28, 2016 — September 11, 2016

Concrete sculptures are found throughout the state at Fred Smith’s Wisconsin Concrete Park in the Northwoods, Mary Nohl’s house in Fox Point, and Nick Engelbert’s Grandview in Hollandale to name a few. Over the past few years, Madison-based artist Steve Feren has made several creatures of glass and concrete for a series titled THE INCREDIBLE BEINGNESS OF LIGHT. Playing with scale and light, Feren carefully chose these materials for the sculptures, including a moose, bird, and aardvark to evoke the creatures’ spiritual side.

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.
