Monika Grzymala is the second Toni and Tim Urban International Artist-in-Residence. Funding for this residency was established in 2015 with the aim of bringing artists from foreign countries, particularly of Jewish heritage, to the Des Moines Art Center and the communities we serve.
In addition to her major installation for Drawing in Space, a selection of Grzymala's hand-made papers will be on exhibition in the lobby of Tifereth Israel Synagogue. These large-scale, glowing works are made from the fibers of mulberry trees—similar to that of traditional Japanese Washi paper. Embedded in the paper are the artist's signature lines, which are raised in subtle relief.
This exhibition will be on view at:
Tifereth Israel Synagogue
924 Polk Boulevard
