Hyperrealism Exhibit at Medici
The Medici Museum of Art will celebrate the opening of its new addition with an exhibition of the eye-catching hyper-realism sculpture of Carole A. Feuerman.
Titled “The Importance of Being Human,” the 18-piece exhibition will open Friday and run until Feb. 1.
Feuerman was one of the founders of the hyperrealism art movement in the 1970s. She is best known for her works of swimmers and dancers and is the only sculptor in the world creating hyperreal art installations for outdoor display.
The exhibition will also include “Monumental Quan,” a larger-than-life Feuerman sculpture that will be permanently displayed on the front lawn of the Medici, said Katelyn Amendolara-Russo, curator and director of the museum.
Feuerman’s work is already in the permanent collections of 31 museums.
