Last thoughts upon boarding plane - of stillness and this precious life, thinking of my friends and family, both online and irl. And of course, thinking of Instagram
‘Mirage’, my installation at the downtown library in Tulsa, Oklahoma is open May 1-31. I’m really excited about this, because I love the library so much, online and in person. This was designed to be a zero impact installation; no holes were drilled, and using existing structures, 8 cables are connected to the work, suspending the lightweight pieces overhead. The 6 sewn panels are connected together to form one large installation. Because of some badass help this took less than two hours to install with @ericsall76 And @annahoj7 , but it took me all day to iron the work:) Outside the courtyard of the @tulsalibrary a video is looping of the panels activated by the wind at @whitesandsnps . This work was made in my studio @tulsaartistfellowship in Tulsa and then installed in both Milan & New Mexico with @missoni, and was also exhibited at @indymoca . I’m happy to now share it with my local community here in Tulsa!
‘Mirage’ now playing at @tulsalibrary looping 24/7 on their outdoor screen. An 8 minute compilation - outtakes of my art billowing during a photo shoot with @missoni at @whitesandsnps . It was a magical day for sure.

Hayes brings art outside the rarefied world of galleries and museums, to a wider, more diverse audience, and activates the imagination by installing sewn patchwork panels in an unexpected way within Tulsa's Central Library. An accompanying film of the fabrics activated in the desert is playing on the large screen in the Children’s Garden, and a book display of artist references is underneath the installation. The artworks inside the Library were created for collaboration with Missoni, and the film outside shows the sewn panels activated in the wind during a photoshoot with @missoni. . Hayes will be in the Maker Space working on May 15 from 4-6PM. All are welcome!!!
