CHALICE is on view at Spring/Break Art Show in New York City September 8 – 13, 2021.  This work expands on the motif of Crown’s Solo Cup series, #solotogether with a dramatic shift in materiality and scale. While the golden vessel at such heroic scale mimics a religious reverence and our instinct to seek out a higher meaning, it most importantly asks its viewers to stand solo and together in how they will choose to address the mounting climate crisis. Looking up into the reified Chalice, one is sure to ask, “what is it that we believe in?”
