October 9, 2019

Beginning Nov. 11, SPSCC will welcome Eun-Kyung Suh to The Gallery at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts for “Stay”. Suh is a Full Professor of 3D Art at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

Suh’s work explores the historical and modern meanings of wall – a continuous vertical brick or stone structure that closes or divides and area of land. Suh’s silk walls include transferred maps of areas and lost homes along the Green Line of the Israeli West Bank Wall.

“I hope to symbolize the lost lives of the people affected by this arbitrary configuration,” stated Suh.
