Abstract:
The installation of the Thomas Sayre exhibition required the collaboration of many people, services, and skills. Sayre’s work titled Arcanum is made of concrete and required a crew of 25 people, a 35-ton crane, and 3 days to get the outdoor sculpture set. Sayre’s work titled Aviary is a steel bar structure and was constructed on-site by the artist, a small crew, and volunteers in the North Carolina Gallery. Sayre enjoys completing a project, but also collaboration process which is a creative, technical, and social event.
