About this event

In an unheated shed near Stapleton, Nebraska in the late 1950's Emery Blagdon began twisting old wire and foil, threading hundreds of beads, and shaping everyday castoff materials with one purpose - to generate natural energy to heal. Spurred on by personal tragedy, Blagdon's obsession to create a "Healing Machine" was life-long as he believed people could be cured by his artful chandlers, cascades of wire, and geometric paintings. All which he deemed gave off healing power. Now, 40 years after his death Emery Blagdon is considered to be a man with boundless visionary creativity: an American artist of great significance. Blagdon's work is part of the permanent collection at John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
