Jun Kaneko sculpture on the U-M North Campus

Jun Kaneko Sculpture on North Campus

January 2014's I Spy

by by Sally Bjork

From the February, 2014 issue

"The relatively new sculpture," says Cathy Behrendt of January's I Spy image, is "in front of the Earl V. Moore building on U-M's North Campus." The paired, larger-than-life heads are the work of Omaha artist Jun Kaneko, who, as our clue noted, is also known for his costume and set designs for opera productions.

Though the sculpture is untitled, Kaneko generally refers to pieces in this series as "heads." Most of the heads he's done elsewhere are ceramic, but the ones at U-M--gifted anonymously and installed this past October--are bronze.

The work is intended to pull viewers in, and does. "While not unwelcome, it still surprises me every time I go to the building," shares Olivia Popp.

We received eight correct entries identifying the sculpture, including one from Christianne Myers, who acknowledges that she may have an "an unfair advantage"--she's a costume designer on the faculty of the Moore Building's tenant, the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Our winner, drawn randomly from among the correct entries, is Amrita Joshi of Ann Arbor. She will enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Seva.

To enter this month's contest, use the photo and clue above to identify the scene, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
