The Peacock Room
The Team


Ahead of schedule Filthy Lucre was moved piece by piece into the museum exhibition space at MASS MoCA. The day of the move we had heavy snowfall but as usual the amazing team worked tirelessly. Thank you Derek, Richard, Mason, & John!

On the same day, all the ceramics were packed carefully for the move and storing until the rest of the installation is complete. Thank you Thomas for not breaking anything and for your fine fashions!

One of the aims in the construction of the work was that it could easily be taken back down into sections in order to be able to travel so that additional venues could display the work. Keep an eye out for dates of travel to the Smithsonian, where the original Peacock Room resides.

I have been painting the shutter doors separately in my home studio in North Adams. They were also moved into the space and have since been hung in place.
