Referred to as a "radial radical," the African American contemporary artist Chakaia Booker used tires as her primary material in constructing these large-scale sculptures on loan from Marlborough Gallery, Chelsea, N.Y. Spiky, dark, imposing and beautiful, these works interact with the museum's peaceful, minimalist sculpture garden in new ways. Booker, who received her MFA from the City College of New York, has work in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), among many others. She also designs clothing and accessories from rubber and creates headpieces from unconventional materials.

The museum is closed Mondays.
