Join us for the opening of Please Touch! The Art of Michael Naranjo. Be the first to see this unique exhibition and meet the artist.
Naranjo’s sculptures, created in wax and cast into bronze, convey human figures, Native hoop dancers, eagles and bison as they appear in nature, as well as mythical creatures. His ideas come from memories and life experiences, and his pieces have become more fluid over the years as his technique evolved, he said. The exhibition features examples of his work spanning 1972 to 2012. Naranjo invites visitors to experience his sculptures as he does: by sense of touch. Please Touch! includes Braille labels and audio descriptions.
