MMA?Exhibit: ‘Bruce McCombs, City Journeys’

The Michigan Museum of Art is hosting the exhibt “Bruce McCombs: City Journeys,” through November 6.

McCombs documents the soaring geometries, transparent glass, and reflected colors of the cityscapes in his highly rendered watercolor paintings. Inspired by photographs taken during his travels, these works reveal McCombs’ eye for the expressive possibilities found in everyday moments, using space and light to create elements of exploration and surprise. McCombs was a professor of art at Hope College from 1969-2021.
