Rain Harris Installation @ the Wexner Center for the Arts (Columbus)

August 1, 2007

decor8 reader Rain Harris of Lusterbunny (and RISD grad) wrote in a few days ago about this gorgeous piece she made that’s currently on display at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio called “Americana”. (It’s part of her fine art, not the work that she offers online.)

Americana is nearly 60 feet long and was designed for the space using wood paneling that is imprinted with a woodland motif of deer, cabins, etc. that she carved Victorian wallpaper designs into using a cnc router almost giving it the look of 3-D wallpaper. Then, she inlaid light blue paint into the grooves to highlight the various patterns and cut out sections of additional panels, extending them from the walls using frosted plexiglas rods. Isn’t this amazing? You can read more about the installation here.
