Chicago sculptor and clay artist Corinne D. Peterson is one of 26 sculptors from throughout the country chosen to display work at the Krasl Art Center’s Biennial Sculpture Invitational in St. Joseph, Michigan, from July 24, 2008 through September 7, 2009.
The theme of the 13-month long, outdoor show is the environment and how the art and the artist address the issue. Corinne Peterson’s Deep Earth Markers I, II, III reflect on the ecological crossroads where our world now finds itself. The surface carving alludes to the eons of geologic activity and layers of human influence that have contributed to the current environmental crisis. The three stoneware markers are 5'10", 6'3" and 6'9" tall.
In addition to Corinne Peterson, works by the following Chicago sculptors are included in the Krasl exhibition: Dean Langworthy, David R. Nelson, Mary K. O’Shaughnessy, Ted Sitting Crow Garner and Lucy Slivinski.
The Krasl Art Center is located at 707 Lake Boulevard, St. Joseph, Michigan. Corinne Peterson’s Markers and sculptures by 11 of the other artists are set in the St. Joseph Riverfront Park, north of the center between Lake St. and the river
