October’s “Artist in the Store” program showcases the work of artist Kim Young. Young is a Cum Laude graduate of Jacksonville University with a Bachelors of Fine Art degree and emphasis in Glassblowing. She is currently working at JU as the professor’s assistant in the glass department in addition to continuing to create her own work and voice as an artist. Speaking of her work Young states, “I am on a constant, ever evolving path to recreate the beauty of this world in my work. I look for inspiration in everything; nature, experiences, people, and feelings. My work is a reflection of what manifests happiness inside of me.”
Kim Young will be on hand in the museum store Tuesday, October 18, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to discuss her creative method of glass blowing. Examples of her work will be available for purchase in addition to a selection of glass pumpkins created by JU students and faculty exclusively for The Cummer Store.
