A Scarecrow at the Crossroads of an Epoch

April 20 – June 30, 2019
Art League Gallery
Reception: Friday, May 3, 2019  |  5:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Michael Dinges‘s drawings, sculpture and engraved objects utilize images of container ships, trade goods, and American iconic imagery and slogans to re-enforce, subvert and explore contemporary ideas of what it’s like to live in the whirlwind of globalization.

Dinges received his Bachelors degree from the Art Center College of Design in 1982 and his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Chicago in 2005. He has exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in Chicago, Detroit, New York, Miami, as well as Vancouver B.C. and in Japan. He has received an Artists Fellowship Award from the Illinois Arts Council as well as a residency at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center Arts/Industry Program.
