Weekend Watch: Michael NamkungToday
Since arriving in January, Michael Namkung has challenged local concepts of just what art is and how it is made. From his “Drawing Gym” workouts to his recent billboard drawing – from the ground with a 30-foot-long bamboo pole, no less – the James Rosenquist Artist in Residence has given both art patrons and the public some things to think about. There will be more to think about tonight when Namkung showcases his drawings and video installations from the “Drawing Gym” during a reception at the North Dakota State University Memorial Union Gallery at 4:30 p.m.
