Measure Twice: Sculptures of Ted Lott
On view through September 4, 2022
Muskegon Museum of Art
Muskegon, Michigan

Grand Rapids-based artist, Ted Lott, creates sculptures that blend frame construction with furniture, creating complex objects that play with our sense of scale, function, and design.

Using vintage objects and modern building processes, “Measure Twice: Sculptures of Ted Lott” explores the designs and methods that create the spaces in which we live and work. His sculptures are unified through themes that speak to the essential need for shelter as well as the technologies and materials by which we build.

“Through fine craft, woodworking, vintage pieces, and allusions to model making, Ted Lott has created beautiful and intriguing works of art for this exhibition. Speaking to the places we inhabit and how we build. These sculptures blend the old and new into moments of investigation and surprise”. Explains Art Martin, Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Muskegon Museum of Art.
