MMA offers ‘Oddities and Delights’

Oddities and Delights is an exploration of the fun, whimsical, and strange artworks in the Muskegon Museum of Art’s permanent collection.

Fantastical vehicles made from discarded parts, a chest freezer transformed into a cow, fabric skinned cats with visible wooden skeletons, a two-headed deer in bronze, and a cheeseburger meal with fries and a drink rendered in glass highlight some of the delightfully unusual artworks.

The exhibit will run through  February 25. Visit https://muskegonartmuseum.org/exhibitions/
