The Veterans for Peace, Chapter 50 group will be holding a silent
auction/jazz concert fundraiser on the campus of Northwest Michigan
College on June 21, 2014, from 7-10 pm.
This fundraiser will be held at the Dennos Museum Center and is in conjunction
with the exhibit of contemporary Chinese photographers and the sculpts
of Seungmo Park. Sculptor Seungmo Park from Seoul, Korea creates giant ephemeral portraits and landscape
scenes by meticulously cutting layer after layer of wire mesh to create
his Maya (meaning “illusion” in Sanskrit) and by meticulously wrapping cast forms to create his aluminum wire sculptures.
Seungmo Park’s sculptural works are drawn from ‘models’ found around
him, be that a person, a piano or a motorcycle. He treats them all the
same without distinction as to their nature, living or inanimate. Taken
into his world, they become a form cast in fiberglass and wrapped in
wire to become transformed into his work of art.
The proceeds of this special scholarship fundraising event will benefit the John Lewis Veterans for Peace Scholarship Fund, a $1,000 award given annually to a financially needy student who
is a veteran or the descendent of a veteran and is registered to attend Northwestern Michigan College (NMC). Alyssa Kornsey was one of the winners of the scholarship (left) in this photograph with Tim Keenan and John Lewis.
Inspired cuisine and cash bar.
