Water is NOW SHOWING in the Main Exhibition space of the Museum.
This show features water/ice related selections from across Yu's 35+ series of work. Vibrant blues and purples paired with hints of green, gold, white, black, and brown dominate this exhibit as it provokes the viewer to think about one of Earth's most valuable resources: water - element of life.
One of Yu's goals is to show the movement, beauty, and struggles in nature through her massive abstractions on canvas. Glacial melting is her favorite topic to paint, and she didn't realize when she began the series many years ago how it would become such a global issue today. Water is a resource we don't often think about on a daily basis in a country like America where many of us live in homes with endless sources of water with the turn of a knob.
