Glass Bridge Series: Rachel B. Hayes
Foreland is excited to launch our Glass Bridge Series with Tomorrow Is For You and Me, an inaugural site-specific installation by the Oklahoma-based fiber and textile artist Rachel B. Hayes!
Changing over biannually, the Glass Bridge Series will present new site-specific commissions—which will also be visible from the street—by artists working with a variety of mediums.
Inspired by abstract geometric paintings, fiber art, stained glass windows, fashion design, and the colors and contour lines of the natural landscape, Rachel Hayes has created fiber-art installations that cover sand dunes, cross rivers, and billow over mountains.
For this inaugural installation, Hayes was commissioned by Foreland to design a new site-specific installation for the Glass Bridge. “My thoughts were to create a color field installation that would cascade, billow, and flow down the long hallway…using a grouping of jewel tone colors, the glass bridge becomes a kaleidoscope to look through at our surrounding environment, as the colors change throughout the day along with the ever-changing skies. At night the piece will glow from within for all to see.”
Join us on June 4, 2023, for an opening reception and Pride Month celebration!
