Michael Warrick, professor of art, recently returned from China, where he participated in the ninth Changchun China International Sculpture Symposium in late July. Warrick created a sculpture that is on display in the city.
“The work ‘Visionary’ was inspired by a person in meditation or prayer,” said Warrick. “It is a 6’ to 9’ form in bronze.”
Changchun is one of five international “sister cities” of Little Rock. According to the Little Rock Sister Cities Commission website, Changchun is constructing an International Sister City Sculpture Park in the southern part of the city:
“The theme of International Sister City Sculpture Park is ‘Friendship, Exchanges and Development.’ The purpose of building the park is to promote exchanges with Sister Cities, offering an international platform for showcasing the national culture and art of its Sister Cities.”
