> DESCRIPTION

Visitors are invited to walk through the BMO Harris Bank Chicago Works: Heidi Norton exhibition with curator Karsten Lund, MCA Curatorial Assistant, and learn about the criteria and ideas that guided his selection of Norton and her artworks.

Meet by the Visitor Service Desk on the second floor

Known for using houseplants in her work, Chicago artist Heidi Norton has her first solo museum exhibition at the MCA,  Norton often captures botanical material in resin or wax, emphasizing cycles of life and death and natural changes in color and form. In addition to plants, Norton also works with sheets of glass as a material. These recurring elements appear in her work as both photographic imagery and physical objects, developing a complex set of relationships between her sculptures and photographs. The exhibition runs August 7 – October 23, 2012.
