Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park will open a new exhibit May 24.
“Looking East, Facing West: The World of Zhang Huan” features the work of Chinese artist Zhang Huan. Huan is a sculptor, painter, photographer and installation artist. His exhibit focuses on the themes of Chinese history, spiritual tranquility and the importance of Buddhism in his own life.
The chief curator of Meijer Gardens calls Huan’s exhibit the first of its kind in the American Midwest.
“Looking East, Facing West: The World of Zhang Huan” will remain on display until August 25. However, a featured piece, the "Long Island Buddha," will remain at Meijer Gardens after that.
