On view through March 6, 2015

Backtrack through time and space as you enter into The Clock  Shop, a nostalgic reality created by artist Toby Atticus Fraley in our lobby. This whimsical installation invites viewers to explore the artist’s process, reflect on the passing of time, and to discover a connection with the past. Drawing inspiration from the visual culture of 1950’s America, Fraley incorporates vintage found objects alongside newly fabricated elements. Functional clocks use playful sculptural elements to evoke childhood memories, and explore darkly humorous narratives.  The space invites audiences to uncover steps in the creative process, as clocks evolve from loose gears and gadgets into fully functional timepieces. All completed clocks are available for purchase through The Store.
