UTTC Brings in World Renowned Artist

Posted:

It's not often that a world renowned Japanese artist comes to North Dakota.

The United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck gets to experience a week with Tsubasa Kato.

Kato is an installation artist who creates "Pull and Raise" sculptures throughout the world.

He builds huge wooden structures sideways, and then recruits volunteers within the community to help pull and raise it up with long ropes.

Kato says he wanted to create something beyond what he could do on his own that requires others' help and support.

His goal is for everyone to feel the sense of sharing the moment and the experience together.

"This time I'm making a 30 foot tall teepee out of wood and pull it up with local people who are involved in the United Tribes and also the community just to represent like the power of gathering and unity," says Tsubasa Kato, "Pull and Raise" Sculpture Artist.

The project will take about six days to complete.

The community pull and raise event will be next Saturday September 7 at 5pm at the United Tribes Technical College.

About 200 volunteers are needed and everyone in the community is invited.
