BEHOLD: Swoon’s Gulf Goddess

MoCA’s last exhibition, Art in the Streets, featured New York artist Swoon (aka, Caledonia Dance Curry). This breathtaking installation entitled “Thalassa” is a sea goddess of complex work. Wood and paper hung in long strips, which consists of different cut materials draped across the Great Hall of the Museum. Thalassa was inspired by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.   To see more of Swoon’s work, check out these great blogs that have written about her, The Street Art Blog and Her Blue Print. I couldn’t find a website for this beautiful street rebel.
