Chinese sculptor


November 07, 1996|By John Dorsey

Chinese sculptor Hou Rong, founding director of the Beijing Modern Sculpture Institute, came to the United States four years ago as sculptor-in-residence at Towson State University, the first such residency by a contemporary sculptor from China at a university in this country.

He stayed on in the master of fine arts program at Towson, where his thesis exhibit opens today at the University Union Gallery. It will include some of the life-size replicas he has created of the famous army of terra cotta warriors unearthed at the tomb of Qin Shi Huang in China.

At the University Union Gallery, Towson State University, 8000 York Road, through Dec. 7. Hours are noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For information, call (410) 830-2787.
