Bemis Center presents ISCP alum Michael Jones McKean's The Rainbow

Michael Jones McKean 
The Rainbow: Certain Principles 
of Light and Shapes Between Forms

June 1 - September 15, 2012

ISCP alum Michael Jones McKean's The Rainbow: Certain Principles of Light and Shapes Between Forms creates a simple but phenomenal visual event—a rainbow in the sky. The public artwork will produce temporary rainbows above the Bemis Center in Omaha using the most elemental materials: sunlight and rainwater. Twice per day with clear sun, for 20 minutes each, a rainbow will appear above Bemis Center's downtown building.

Michael Jones McKean (Truk Island, Micronesia, 1976) is an internationally recognized American artist. He is the recipient of numerous awards, most recently a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Nancy Graves Foundation Award, and an Artadia Award. In addition to a reseidency at ISCP, McKean has been in residence at The Core Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; The Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center; the Bemis Center; The Archie Bray Foundation, Helena, Montana; and ThreeWalls, Chicago, Illinois. He is an Associate Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in the Sculpture and Extended Media Department.
