Conceptual Art by Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler
"Constitution On Tour," 1991, Model train cars and tracks, sandblasted and metal brackets.
"The artists Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler, who worked together from the late 1970s until Ms. Ericson’s death in 1995, fused Conceptual art, community action and Americana in ways few others have, before or since. For a 1991 project in Charleston, S.C., they painted the exterior of a house just outside the city’s historic district in a riotous camouflage of colors (each one drawn from a list approved by the city’s Board of Architectural Review, which probably had not anticipated anyone wanting to use them all at once)."
