KAC East Garden – Art Dome

You might know Thomas Freier from his quirky sculptures made out of vintage film cameras, toasters, rotary phones, and other found objects seen at the Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff. But Freier also has experience in fabrication and set design that he has put to use to create Art DomeKAC’s East Garden Interactive Artwork this summer. The public is invited to enjoy the installation when programs are not in session.

” I grew up and live in Benton Harbor. I love antique gadgets, and upcycle them into sculptures. I fasten all my pieces with period-correct fasteners so they remain vintage.

“I remember when Krasl Art Center was built, and always wanted to be a part of that. When I was asked to submit a concept for an outdoor studio space, my mind exploded with ideas. I decided an ‘Art Dome’ would be aesthetically pleasing, and functional for art classes.” – Thomas Freier

The East Garden is dedicated in memory of Maria G. “Lupe” Hopp and intended always to feature an interactive artwork. This 2022 installation is underwritten by Horizon Bank & the Daniel F. Hopp Family.
