  • The newspaper art piece reminds me of large paper bags and that piece is really cool

    — Kayden

  • Reminds me of both Ernesto Neto - in how he reshapes the environment of the exhibit - and goldsworthy in how he flexibly works with pre existing shapes and forms.

    — Jordan

  • Connections to the universe through the most apparently ordinary things- inspiring!

    — Geri

  • El Anatsui has taken African art to a new and phenomenal level. It retains the look and palate of much African art, but has merged materials, scale and design with the modern art world. Goes beyond, really. He has created beauty that is both fluid and "weighted" with historical meaning. I'm awed.

    It made me felt like air. ANd as I walked around s I felt like I was floating.

  • Connections can be made and broken.
