Lunchtime Tour: Hugh Hayden’s “Brier Patch”

20220116 MSPC HUGH HAYDEN V6A4041

Join us for a 15-minute tour of Hugh Hayden’s Brier Patch with Curatorial Manager Truth Murray-Cole every Wednesday at 12:00 PM. Please meet at the reflecting pool near the Farragut Monument.

Brier Patch, on view through May 1, consists of 100 elementary school-style desks with tree branches erupting from the table tops. Referencing Joel Chandler Harris’ Uncle Remus, his songs and his sayings, the work calls on the notion of the brier patch as a place protective for some and dangerous for others.
