Artist Joonja Lee Mornes draws inspiration from watching nature in various lights through the seasons. Seasonal, temporal, and phenomenal changes were a constant part of Mornes's observations while growing up in Korea. Since then her observations have turned from the rice fields to the prairie landscape.

Selected paintings and new window installation pieces will be featured in the exhibit, Layering Time and Motion: Paintings and installation by Joonja Lee Mornes.

This exhibition is Mornes's second Cultural Community Partnership Grants Award from the Minnesota State Arts Board. The University Libraries' Architecture & Landscape Architecture Library is pleased to be the hosting partner for this exhibition.

Mornes has recently exhibited at the Phipps Center for the Arts, the Flaten Art Museum in St. Olaf College and the College of St. Benedict. Other past exhibition highlights are an installation at the MAEP Gallery in the Minneapolis Institute of Art, scenery design for a dance theater production, Cut Sleeve, at Intermedia Arts, and a group exhibition at the Katherine Nash Teaching Gallery, University of Minnesota.
