The Modbo is surprised and delighted to host “My Scenery”– a last minute show of gorgeous sculptures by internationally renowned artist ByeongDoo Moon, accompanied by fascinating textile pieces by his wife, Hyewon Sim. Although known locally for his large, beautiful outdoor pieces in downtown Colorado Springs, this show will instead feature smaller works by the artist. The opening reception is from 5 pm until 9 pm on Friday, August 6th. As of this writing, masks are suggested for unvaccinated viewers. The show runs through Friday, August 27th. In addition to the opening reception, the gallery is happily open by appointment. The Modbo is located in the Arts Alley in downtown Colorado Springs at 17C E. Bijou. Find the stretch of Bijou that is between Cascade and Tejon, and go south down the alley. Street parking is available, but The Modbo recommends the lot on Cascade just north of Bijou, which costs $3. The Modbo can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, themodbo.com, or 633-4240.
Originally from South Korea, sculptor Byeongdoo Moon moved his family to Colorado Springs at the end of November. Having exhibited numerous pieces in Colorado Springs’ Art on the Streets, he was moved by the city’s response to his work. Most recently, his piece “Air or Water,” located at the Plaza of the Rockies building, was the third place winner for Art on the Streets. Using stainless steel wire, Byeongdoo’s exquisitely crafted work speaks to the interdependence of humans and nature.
