New Smith sculpture at MMAM (11/01/2013)
The Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) is proud to announce the exhibition of a brand new interactive sculpture titled Ina, Ina, Ina Machina, to be exhibited for the first time in a major solo exhibition featuring the work of Leo and Marilyn Smith. The new work is both sculpture and performance piece, which Leo and friends will perform during a reception at the Museum on November 14th, from 5-7 p.m. The event is free for Museum members and $10 for nonmembers.

The exhibition, titled The Four Seasons: Leo and Marilyn Smith Folk Art, opens on November 1st and is on display through March 2nd, 2014. Along with the new piece, it contains numerous sculptures focusing on the Smith’s artworks that relate to the seasons of the Upper Mississippi region. Sculptures in the exhibition range from everyday life to the symbolic. Mystery can be found in the new sculpture, which derives its inspiration from the Dakota word for “woman” and “earth,” calling our attention to our universal connection to nature and its lifecycles. Museum Director Andrew Maus states, “Despite that we have done many exhibitions of the Smith’s work, for good reasons, they are always very popular. Their artworks are charming, sometimes simple, sometimes profoundly complex, and always meaningful. We are definitely excited to share this exhibition with the public!”

The Minnesota Marine Art Museum is home to much of the life’s work of Leo and Marilyn Smith, whose prolific artistic output throughout the decades have given them national attention and local affection. The Museum is also the official retailer of Leo and Marilyn Smith Folk Art reproductions, for sale at the MMAM Store.

The Four Seasons: Leo and Marilyn Smith Folk Art is made possible thanks to generous support provided by
