The historic Eureka School, located in the Sixth Street Museum District of Hattiesburg, Michigan, is gearing up to host an exciting art exhibition this summer. From June 2nd to August 25th, Rainbows and Tornadoes: The Mysterious World of Brunch will take visitors on a journey into the mind of multimedia artist, Al Branch.
Branch has created an impressive collection of art that includes portraits, abstract paintings, genre art, naturalistic wildlife, and illustrations for books. The exhibit features nature-inspired illustrations that are full of narrative detail. “Brunch’s bold and vibrant use of color creates a captivating experience,” said museum director LaToya Norman. “His artwork is not only beautiful, but also conveys a moving message about the power of unity.”
The exhibition also showcases colorful illustrations from Branch’s unpublished book, Tommy John and the Rainbow Tornado, which tells the story of a boy caught in a storm. As he is plunged into a magical world full of rainbow colors, he embarks on thrilling adventures. “Branch’s illustrations beautifully capture the innocence, imagination and quirkiness of his childhood,” said Monica Lowell, collections and exhibition specialist at the Sixth Street Museum District.
Rainbows and Tornadoes: The Mysterious World of Brunch is free and open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 2pm and Saturdays by appointment. An opening reception for the art exhibition will be held on Saturday, June 3 at 11:00 am.
