Halfmoon Rising

Ehere is something startling, a bit macabre, but always beautiful about the large-scale stoneware sculptures of Raven Halfmoon. Inspired by the Moai statues of Easter Island, as well as Indigenous pottery, the Oklahoma-born artist creates works that can weigh more than 800 pounds and stand roughly nine feet tall. This month, local art lovers can marvel at these massive works when The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum presents Raven Halfmoon: Flags of Our Mothers from June 25 to January 7, featuring an amalgamation of new and borrowed pieces created by Halfmoon over the previous five years, as well as original works to be commissioned by The Aldrich.
