Air and Space Museum
601 Independence Ave., SW
Location: Special Exhibits, Gallery 104, 1st Floor, West Wing
On view are 35 works by Chinese painter and former air traffic controller Wang Ming. Since leaving China in 1951, Ming used his art to build bridges of understanding between people of all nationalities and cultures. Although his work is rooted in traditional Chinese forms and calligraphy, he borrows from abstract expressionism by using such nontraditional materials as acrylic paints and Pellon (fabric interfacing). In the 1960s, he exhibited with such luminaries of the Washington Color School as Kenneth Noland and Gene Davis.
