Reflections stainless steel
by Irina Koukhanova
The seventeen-foot stainless steel sail abstract sculpture symbolizes when lumber was carried by schooners to Great Lakes ports from Ludington. It is the first sculpture seen from boaters who spend leisure time on the waters of Lake Michigan as they come back into the Ludington harbor. The abstract sculpture was created by Russian-born sculptor Irina Koukhanova. The Schoenherr family purchased the sculpture and donated it to the WaterFront Park at the Ludington harbor.[5] Irina Koukhanova, the sculptor, was educated at the Stroganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry, the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and the University of Notre Dame. She has participated in United States exhibitions and international exhibitions. Koukhanova does two-dimensional work in printing techniques with drawings and three- dimensional sculptures. She was awarded Best of Show in Box Heart Gallery's "Art Inter/National" exhibition and had in 2010 an exhibition at DKO Galerie in Zurich, Switzerland. She has won awards at exhibitions at Boston Sculptors Gallery, Owensboro Museum of Art, Marlboro Gallery in Maryland, and the Indianapolis Art Center in Indiana.[19] The stainless steel sculpture of a rendering of three sails was the sixth put in the Ludington Waterfront Park. The plan is up to ten sculptures for the park at the harbor near downtown. It was officially dedicated on August 12, 2006. Joan Schoenherr, one of the donors of the sculpture, is the chair of the sculpture selections group. Dimensions: 17 ft. tall Medium: Stainless Steel
