Gifts of Art presents Reconstructed Blueprints: Acrylic paintings by Adnan Charara

July 16, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

One of Adnan Charara’s pieces, now on display at University Hospital.

In this exhibit, Adnan Charara translates his assembled characters, from both collage and found object assemblage, into commanding acrylic paintings.

The backgrounds interact with the figures, who represent history, identity and the struggle for a sense of belonging. Indeed, they are blueprints for being human: imperfect, unique and multifaceted.

Charara works in various mediums ranging from drawing to jewelry to large-scale sculpture. He is a Lebanese-American artist with a studio in Detroit.

Check out his work at Michigan Medicine:

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery, University Hospital Main Lobby, floor 1.

When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through Sept. 9
