Satch Hoyt, an internationally acclaimed artist and musician based in Berlin, produced a monumental new sculptural work during his residency with the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University in September 2009. Hoyt and a team of assistants constructed a 16-foot canoe titled "Celestial Vessel," which will be part of the upcoming Nasher Museum exhibition, "The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl" (opening September 2, 2010). Materials for the work include a metal armature and vintage RCA Victor Red Seal 45-rpm records from the 1950s that Hoyt collected. This project was made possible by a Visiting Artist Grant from the Council for the Arts, Office of the Provost, Duke University.
