New Work from John Kushmaul

On view in the Loft Gallery

John Kushmaul’s works are based on photographs that he takes of the city. Little Rock serves as a convenient subject because of the variety of architecture covering the history of modern life in Arkansas. The street lights, power poles, wires, and satellite dishes show parts of the layers of technology that cover this history. The light of the seasons, also, is the subject of some of these works.

The Galleries at Library Square are FREE and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9-6.
