Viewing the Exhibition with Tami Miller

IMG_0782.JPGJulie and I were privileged to tour the the James Spencer Russell exhibition at the Indiana State Museum with Tami Miller, Curator of Exhibitions, Collections and Education of the Krasl Art Center, St. Joseph, Michigan. Tami had this to say about the exhibition in a post on Facebook: If you have the opportunity to visit Indy before October 12, do not miss this exhibition. It is wonderful! Think Cornell, Johns, Nevelson, Rauschenberg and apply it to a man who lived next door and exhibited with many of them, the returned home to small town Indiana in his 60s and just kept on going making art daily, so far under the radar his neighbors had no idea.

Thanks, Tami!

In 2008 Tami featured three of Jim’s pieces in the Krasl exhibition, Text as Art, guest curated by Craig Smith.

The Krasl always has exceptional exhibitions and programming. When you are in the St. Joseph area, definitely make a point to stop in and check out their exhibitions. They are also very engaged in providing sculpture in public areas in their community. Also, their sculpture biennial is one of the finest exhibitions of sculpture in the Midwest.
