B.O.M.B. Mk. II

Closeup of a sculptural piece from the B.O.M.B. Mk. II exhibit by Dylan Loftis.

Dylan Loftis, who graduated from VCU this spring with an M.F.A. in craft and material studies, presents two intriguing conversation pieces created for his thesis, Bone of my Bone. The pieces, collectively titled B.O.M.B. Mk. II (Bone of my Bone Mark II), are sculptures rooted in traditional woodworking and furniture design. The artist has taken broken furniture and "repaired" it into fanciful, grotesque new shapes.

One of the pieces, made from fragments of Windsor chairs like those that once used in the library building, somewhat resembles a Caduceus, the medical staff symbol.

The exhibit is free and open to all during normal library hours. Parking is available for a fee in the 8th St. parking deck. If special accommodations are needed, please contact Thelma Mack, research and education coordinator, at (804) 828-0017.
