Brian Jungen uses common, mass-produced objects to make powerful sculpture. Currently on view at The National Museum of the American Indian in DC: totem poles made of golf bags, golf balls and painted golf tees; a whale skeleton from reassembled plastic chairs, and Northwest Coast-style masks out of Nike Air Jordan basketball sneakers.
Brian Jungen's art work will be exhibited at The National Museum of the American Indian until August 8, 2010.
