Truth Bubble Sign Tree

Exhibition Website

Aug 2016 - Aug 2017

Installed in the Woldenberg Art Center’s Newcomb Pottery Garden.

Fifteen-feet tall and painted a shiny deep black, TRUTH BUBBLE SIGN TREE is the work of celebrated American artist Hank Willis Thomas, known for his thought-provoking works on race, representation, and consumer culture.

The work incorporates individual cartoon-like speech balloons that, like leaves, ornament the six jagged branches. Each bubble, rendered in white-painted steel with heavy black outlines, features a solitary word or punctuation mark. One will see, in no certain order, truth, !, you, I, is, love, the, ?.
