This is the 4th in the Solo Exhibition Series presentation at the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park. The Solo Exhibition Series at Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park started in the year 2009. The exhibition brings exceptional artwork by nationally and internationally recognized artists to the park.

The first of the solo exhibition series was 12-figure installation “Horizons” by Icelandic sculptor Steinunn Thorarinsdottir [2009].

“Don’t Tread on Me” [2014] by Chakaia Booker is the fourth in the series of Solo Exhibitions. It consists of three outdoor pieces: Serendipity [1998], Meeting Ends [2005] and What’s Not [2009]. These works from different times in her career suggests her creative range. Chakaia Booker is best known for her work with discarded automobile tires, which she cuts into pieces of varying length, width and shape – and fastens onto wooden or metal armatures. She builds indoor and outdoor sculptures ranging in scale from intimate wall pieces to large public works.

These images were taken on Sep 12, 2014, at the annual benefit fundraiser for the Park, “Carts & Cocktails”.
