The Bangor Daily News reported on current exhibitions at the University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor. The exhibits, which run through Sept. 19, include Niho Kozuru’s “Inter/Dimension,” Anna Helper’s “Blind Spot,” and “With Ties to Maine,” a collection of Maine-related art celebrating the 150th anniversary of UMaine. Kozuru’s exhibit features vibrantly colored translucent cast-rubber sculptures, according to the article. Helper’s pieces include wire sculptures that cast shadows on the wall and prints created by wood carved and scratched to resemble animal patterns, the article states. George Kinghorn, director and curator of the museum, said each of the pieces selected for “With Ties to Maine” was created by artists who have contributed to Maine’s “rich and diverse artistic history.”
