The Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Lecture Series presents Kris Kuksi.

Kris was born and raised in the rural Midwest, in an isolation that resulted in an imaginative inner life. Over time, he developed a rich interior tapestry of fantasy, creatively expressed in assemblages made from LEGOs, army men, action heros and other figurines, model train kits, jewelry, rocks, religious souvenirs, ornamental objects, agrarian disgrads and other rural detritus. Each of the assemblages host endless baroque and macabre narratives reminiscent of lost civilizations, classical sculpture, and fantastic realism. His ornate works of art transcend a fine-art gallery context.

Free and open to the public.

Parking is available in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage, caddy corner to Richards Hall.
