- _Robert Oknos_, Norm Magnusson, cast aluminum and acrylic paint, 2006.
Norm Magnusson's mock historical markers, which confront a range of social and political issues, will be installed in Ridgefield, Connecticut for the exhibition, "On This Site Stood," presented by the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum through August 12. The markers are placed along Main Street and in the Aldrich's Cornish Family Sculpture Garden, including new creations inspired by historic Ridgefield and specifically designed for this installation. Magnusson is known for creating pieces that offer symbolic commentary using diverse mediums—acrylic, wood, canvas, graphite, and self-help books. Previous works include the series "America's Seven Deadly Sins" and "Animal Allegories."
