    Hickory, NC

    Hickory Museum of Art

    Hickory Sticks is a site-specific installation and exhibition designed to activate and enhance the architecture of the Coe Gallery at The Hickory Museum of Art. The exhibition included a new series of espresso mud wall drawings based on the architecture of the space. Additionally a new woven coffee stir stick and coffee cup sleeve tensile construction was completed on site during the course of a week long residency. This construction plays with and builds on the presence of the iconic spiral staircase within the gallery. The features of the space, including the spiral staircase, the balcony, and high arched windows provide viewers with many unique experiences within the space. Additionally a curved wall alcove gallery allowed for the creation of a new suspended work. This project would not have been possible without the staff and support of the Hickory Museum of Art and our sponsors:
