Museum Musings

HelenaFortunately or unfortunately nothing is left out, embellished, or improved. Each sculpture is simply a recreation of its model where the good, the bad, and the ugly are showcased to their full height of glory. These sculptures really give one pause to contemplate the reality of the human figure. Whether you find these figures fascinating or revolting doesn’t change the fact they are amazing works of art. Time is running out to see Marc Sijan’s Ultra Realistic Sculpture display at the Dane G. Hansen Museum. The display is available for viewing through October 1, 2017.

Week one students were introduced to the Texas Two-Step and the Swing. Week two, students added turns to the two-step and basic swing and Kerry also introduced the class to the Polka. According to Kerry, the class is doing great and he is moving at a faster pace than usual because everyone is catching on very quickly. It appears everyone is having a great time as there are many smiles and laughter is mor often heard than not.
