Chakaia Booker is a New York artist who uses cast-off tires to make large-scale sculptures, and one of her sculptures is in the library of the Donald W. Reynolds Library at Philander Smith College, a significant acquisition made possible by the Reynolds Foundation’s 2 percent for art allocation it provides along with its grants. I found this video of Booker and her work today while researching an exhibit coming to the Mosaic Templars next week (more on that to come) on Exhibits USA’s website. Watch, enjoy, go see the piece at Philander.
