Sayaka Ganz: Reclaimed Creations

February 3, 2023 - March 17, 2023

Sculptural works that will grace the WMA’s lobby during the exhibition “sustainABILITY” are by Sayaka Ganz, a Japanese sculptor living and working in Indiana. “Storm” was created in 2018 from reclaimed plastics with a welded aluminum armature and will “fly” above visitors with her 6-foot wingspan. “Dive” the penguin, also made from reclaimed plastic objects, will join “Storm” in the lobby. He is visiting campus to catch up with his other penguin friends who live nearby in Hendrix’s Olin C. Bailey Library rotunda. They were also created by Ganz and were acquired in 2014 by Hendrix College as a part of the permanent art collection.
