Immersive exhibit at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

A multi-media exhibition by renowned Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias will be at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park until Sept. 24. 

The exhibit, titled “Cristina Iglesias: Under and In Between” displays her work from the last 20 years, as it is her first public display in the United States in more than two decades. According to Meijer Gardens’ website, Iglesias’ work includes, “wall reliefs, metal silk-screens, liquid sculptures, video and debuts a new ‘Cave series of copper panels.”

Iglesias is also known for incorporating water and dimensional terrain into her art.

“Michigan is an ideal place to host an exhibition of Cristina Iglesias’ work, given the deep connection so many Michiganders feel to the waters and natural environment that surround us,” Meijer Gardens said when discussing an event held at the exhibition in August.
