Michael Van Hout's Animal Forms
Van Hout is well-known for his metalwork and sculptures, which are widely exhibited throughout the state. The Cameron Art Museum has hosted his giraffes and zebras; the education building and library at UNC-Wilmington are home to several of his aquatic installations; and two of the state´s aquariums feature his underwater creations, swimming right alongside the real thing. His installations are displayed on site at several area elementary schools as well as the Children´s Museum of Wilmington and Airlie Gardens.
A graduate of UNC-Greensboro, Van Hout's animal forms are presented in wire, sheet metal, paper mache, relief prints, and wooden sticks. He is a full-time studio artist at Acme Art.
On display through April.
