Moondust in your hair, crib, Karen Condron’s clothing, 2019

Sculptor and artist Jim Condron ’92 has an exhibition at Wings Over Wall Street, a benefit gala for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Condron’s exhibition, Close to Youis the first contemporary art exhibition at the annual event, held May 22, 2019. The sculptures pay homage to Condron’s mother, who passed away last July from ALS and was the 2015 winner of the MDA Spirit Award.

“To make the sculptural works, Jim Condron combines his mother’s clothing and shoes with materials such as a bicycle, a crib, mannequin arms, yarrow, and straw to create intangible forms that express his mother’s ebullience throughout her life and the challenges of the disease,” a press release from the association said.
