Featured Artist - Andy Yoder
Andy Yoder has worked at Archival Art Services designing framing for more than 5 years. Beyond his work with us he is also a phenomenally talented and accomplished artist. His work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Winkleman Gallery, and Saatchi Gallery among others. He currently works from his studio at STABLE, a new artist space in Northeast Washington, DC.
Andy’s upcoming solo exhibition, Overboard, at CulturalDC’s Mobile Art Gallery has been postponed due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. The exhibition is inspired by “The Great Shoe Spill of 1990.” In May 1990 five shipping containers holding 80,000 Nike sneakers went overboard in the North Pacific. The shoes eventually washed ashore littering the US northwest coastline. Andy’s newest sculptures are recreations of the iconic Jordan 5 sneaker, released by Nike in 1990. To bring attention to today’s culture of consumerism each shoe is sculpted from reclaimed materials taken from recycling bins. The shoe sculptures will be displayed in CulturalDC’s mobile shipping container art gallery. After the exhibit opens in DC it will then travel to the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center in Vermont.
