The Muskegon Museum of Art presents “Norwood Viviano: Recast Cities,” a unique glass exhibition that merges three-dimensional cityscapes with objects to convey the history and industrial identity of cities across the country such as Grand Rapids, Detroit, Houston, New York, Portland, Toledo, and now Muskegon.
Norwood Viviano is a West Michigan artist and Associate Professor/Sculpture Program Coordinator at Grand Valley State University. His artwork frequently explores the dynamics between manufacturing and population across the United States.
Artist Statement – “For the past decade, I have used both historic and new modes of mapping as well as materials of industry – ceramics, glass, steel – to investigate the relationship between manufacturing and population changes in American cities.”
