Cranbrook Map Tapestry (after Loja Saarinen)

Walmart photo-woven throw, 2014, 80"w x 60"h x 0.5"d

This work is a reproduction of a tapestry woven by Loja Saarinen. The original was produced by hand sometime between 1932 and 1935. My reproduction was digitally woven on demand by Walmart. The process of re-creation highlights the transformation of labor and art in the last century. My work investigates labor and culture through engagement with history and institutions.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
