Some pics of TJ's idea for his installation. He will build his sculpture this week.
This week, TJ Tangpuz invites the public to watch him build his on sight installation in the main gallery of the Arts Center. TJ will create a figure that will rotate around a pole in the main gallery. We think TJ is a genius.
