Muskegon Museum of Art
Perchance to Dream: The Art of Michael Peoples Exhibit
June 21 through Sept. 16, Muskegon Museum of Art
The Muskegon Museum of Art will present Perchance to Dream: The Art of Michael Peoples June 21 through September 16, 2018. Michael Peoples creates cast wax sculptures of pop culture objects and icons. His intensely colored objects celebrate nostalgia and kitsch, translating cartoon character Halloween buckets, honey bear bottles, garden ornaments, and the like into entrancing, candy-like sculptures and installations. Perchance to Dream is a gallery installation featuring hundreds of cast circus peanuts, an iconic childhood sweet. Towering structures of stacked casts of the equally iconic honey bear bottle punctuate a carpet of multi-colored peanuts in the installation.
