Satch Hoyt, an internationally acclaimed artist and musician based in Berlin, produced a monumental new sculptural work during his residency with the Nasher Museum in September 2009. Hoyt and a team of assistants constructed a 16-foot canoe titled Celestial Vessel, which is part of the Nasher Museum exhibition, The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl (September 2, 2010, through February 6, 2011). Materials for the work include a metal armature and vintage RCA Victor Red Seal 45-rpm records from the 1950s that Hoyt has collected. The work will also include an original soundscape composed by the artist. For more information please go to www.nasher.duke.edu.
This project is made possible by a Visiting Artist Grant from the Council for the Arts, Office of the Provost, Duke University.
