press release

This seasons special exhibition is of works by American artist, Chakaia Booker. A selection of sculptures will be on view inside the Museum Building and installed on the grounds.

Ms. Booker creates large-scale sculptures out of discarded truck, car, and bicycle tires. Formally inventive, rhythmic, and imbued with enormous presence, the works are at once lyrical and powerful. Both the scale and the light-absorbing quality of the rich black sculptures make them ideal for display in the outdoors.

As a highly regarded artist and arts educator, in 2002 Ms. Booker was awarded a Pollock-Krasner grant, honoring artistic achievement. Her work, included in the collections of the Bronx Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Newark Museum, and The Studio Museum of Harlem, among others, has been featured in museums, galleries, and sculpture gardens across the country, as well as the Netherlands and Japan.
