Mark di Suvero: Tabletops, opens Saturday and continues through Feb. 26 at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Toledoans may have seen the sculptor's work on the lawn of the Toledo Museum of Art: Blubber (1980) is the giant tire swing along Monroe Street. Honored with the 2011 National Medal of Arts, di Suvero, 78, is known for crafting monumental works of industrial steel and salvaged materials that have been placed on museum grounds, landscapes, and urban environments around the world. By comparison, this exhibit is intimate, featuring 15 of his tabletop-sized pieces built between the 1950s and the present. Their size allowed him to explore ideas relating to the calligraphic nature of form, balance, proportion, and movement. They have been borrowed from private collections as well as the artist. In addition, two di Suvero steel sculptures are on the museum's grounds. The museum is at 525 South State St. in Ann Arbor. Information: 734-764-0395 and umma.umich.edu.

Artwork by Summer Zickefoose will be displayed Oct. 10 through Nov. 11 at the University of Findlay's Lea Gallery. A reception with the artist will be 7 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 14 at the gallery, inside the Virginia B. Gardner Fine Arts Pavilion. Zickefoose, who grew up in Iowa, is an interdisciplinary artist who says the smells of fresh-cut hay, horse manure, and hog pens have lodged permanently in her subconscious and in one way or another, affect her work. "Americana and the art traditions that correspond with it are woven throughout my projects," she said. Information: 1-800-472-9502.

Items for News of Art should be sent two weeks before the event to tlane@theblade.com.
