    I first saw Tara Donovan’s work in Sculpture magazine and I fell in love. There’s something about art made from everyday objects that’s so wonderful, making something ordinary into something beautiful.

  • I first saw Tara’s work in the cavernous Ace gallery on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles several years ago. It comes across well in photographs but is truly outstanding in person and I urge anyone near by one of her exhibits to attend.

  • oondah

    I saw a collect of her installations at the ICA Boston. These photos do not do her work justice. The scale that these pieces are in is mind boggling. Amazing work!

  • I love that the items are completely unrecognizable when they are grouped together like this. (one up from the bottom is made of straws!)

  • dan

    I saw her work at the ICA in Boston a year or so ago, and seeing it in person = an even crazier level of amazing.

    If you ever have any chance to see her sculptures, don’t hesitate, JUST GO!

  • Michael

    I just saw her exhibit in San Diego – awesome in person.

  • Ari

    These pieces look phenomenal! I wish I was able to view these works of art in person. The one with the cups must be incredible.

  • justin nelson

    wow. unreal. seriously next level.

  • Hiroyuki Hamada

    One of my favorite artists today. Really cool works.

  • William Clark

    I know this sounds ridiculous, but the sound of her straw wall is absolutely amazing. Imagine a silence so profound, that it is deafening. If you ever have the pleasure of seeing her work, lean close and actually listen to it. Completely different view of the works.

    • wow i would love to experience her work in person
