Art Lover No. 9: Chakaia Booker

Art Lover No. 9 of NMWA’s “25 Art Lovers” campaign, sculptor Chakaia Booker, is both a patron of the museum and featured artist in the collection. Her abstract tire creations have recently been installed in conjunction with the New York Avenue Sculpture Project, the only public art space featuring changing installations of contemporary works by women artists.
