Football and pets sculptures now on display

November 26, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources
One of Steve Wirtz’s pieces on display at University Hospital.

An exhibit of Steve Wirtz’s sculptures features a selection of his Dynamic Football series and animal works.

The Dynamic Football laminated paper works explore compositions of action, allowing the artist to exploit the properties of the medium. The pieces are constructed by gluing many layers of paper over wire armatures. When dry, the sculptures are painted in an often splashy, sketchy style.

Wirtz’s silly animal works are what the artist is best known for, and they take shape in his Goetzville, Michigan studio.

You can find examples of both at University Hospital!

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery – University Hospital Main Corridor, Floor 2.

When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through Dec. 6
