In a site-specific Threshold series installation, Jessica Stockholder intersects the Smart’s lobby with a wave of color and texture that climbs to the clerestory, cuts across the floor, and travels outwards into the Museum’s sculpture garden. Rose’s Inclination makes use of ordinary materials—thrift store lamps, paint, Plexiglas, carpet, and even mulch—to “reach up and out” and vibrantly alter the physical experience of the Smart Museum’s modernist architecture.
