Museum Visitor, 2011

Duane Hanson is known for making lifelike sculptures of everyday people including Tourist and Hard Hat Construction Worker. I placed an indistinguishable museum platform, milk crate, and wall label next to Hanson’s Dishwasher sculpture at the Portland Art Museum. Throughout the night visitors could pose on the platform and create live sculptures. This project was made as part of Shine A Light, a program featuring socially engaged artist interventions throughout the Portland Art Museum.
