This is a permanent installation for the Nerman Museum of Art designed by Kyu Sung Woo. Zahner was responsible for several metal components throughout the Museum, but perhaps the most intriguing aspect was the permanent artwork underneath the Northeast entrance, an animated display of LED lights for artist Leo Villareal, shown above as an animated GIF. Zahner manufactured and installed the work for Leo Villareal.
