Laumeier Sculpture Park presents the opening of Farid Rasulov: 1001 Skewers in the Aronson Fine Arts Center’s Whitaker Foundation Gallery, a large-scale sculpture installation using more than 1,000 kebab skewers with configurations based on Azeri fairy tales. Bird #1, 2018, is a monumental sculpture commission located in Laumeier’s outdoor galleries. The concrete artwork is a formal extraction of geometric, abstract shapes inspired by Asian carpet ornaments. Rasulov’s two installations at Laumeier are whimsical applications of design techniques inspired by the artist’s heritage in Azerbaijan. Exhibition opens Saturday, April 7, 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. in the Aronson Fine Arts Center at Laumeier Sculpture Park, 12580 Rott Road, Saint Louis, Missouri. Free, all ages.
