San Diego-based artist Ashley V. Blalock is best known for her enormous crocheted red doilies. Her works fuse craft and fine art and are inspired by everyday artifacts from the domestic sphere. Responding to the Hunter Museum’s architecture and considering how people walk through the space, Blalock’s large-scale, site-specific, year-long installation will welcome museum visitors at the intersection of the East Wing and the Douglas Fir Gallery and lead them up the staircase to the Hunter Mansion.
