Recently at Real Art Ways I was assigned to help a visiting artist install a sculpture for a exhibition. It was a lot of fun! The artist is Kylie Ford, a West Virginia based artist and professor, and it was loads of fun talking with her about her practice. The exhibit was centered around the intersection and forced combination of the accidents of Real Art Ways historic reclaimed Hartford warehouse space, and those of present day West Virginia. The show explored the way both areas, though very different, experience similar economic trends, which creates similar trends in the architecture. I learned a lot, and definitely did not hurt myself 😉
