The Final Stop

During September 2017 I began the installation of a massive immersive installation environment at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery. The culmination of the better part of a year of solid effort, The Final Stop was a huge and extraordinary endeavor that filled the gallery space, offering visitors the experience of standing on an abandoned subway platform where distant trains seem to approach, yet never arrive. I spent a solid month in Washington D.C. at the Renwick, installing the work. I made some lasting friendships. Every day brought a new “challenge” to be met or administrated. It was a mad dash from day one. In short, it was the largest most difficult project I’ve ever attempted as an artist. My great friend and collaborator, Scott Bennett, created the lighting and sound design.
