Driving through Traverse City recently, I stopped by The Little Fleet and grabbed a burrito to bring home. And you just never know what chance encounters might happen during these little life moments.
While in line at the Roaming Harvest truck, I got to talking to a woman named Sunny and discovered that she had an art exhibit opening at the Dennos Museum. She invited me to the opening the following night, and I’m so glad I took her up on it.

The exhibit, called “Unwoven Light,” is simply gorgeous with its intertwining chain-link fencing and plexiglass casting brilliant shadows on the walls. We became fast friends, and now I wish she lived closer so we could hang out.
Here’s a bit about the exhibit from the Dennos website:
Korean-American artist Soo Sunny Park is best known for using everyday building materials to create large, experiential installations that rely on repetition and the interplay of light. At the Dennos, Park will recreate a version of her installation Unwoven Light that will be suspended as a sculptural composition of chain-link fencing and iridescent Plexiglas formed in organic shapes in a gallery transforming it into a shimmering world of light, shadow, and brilliant color. A graduate of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, she is Associate Professor of Studio Art at Dartmouth College.
Check out Sunny’s website here, and be sure and stop by the Dennos to see her fantastic exhibit, which runs through Sept. 4, 2016. Check out a few photos from opening night.
