Nebraska darling, Ying Zhu, will fascinate viewers with her mixed media installation art. Zhu obtained her MFA at UNL and now resides and works in Omaha, where she has built a studio in an old building that she shares with various other artists. Zhu’s work is nationally recognized. Zhu is one of four artists selected to create a large scale installation for the new building housing Project Harmony in Omaha. For her piece, Zhu is creating a 500 square foot mural out of legos. Working with unusual materials in a thought provoking way is a hallmark of Zhu’s work and it will be exciting to see what she does at the LUX.
