Historical Context:
Michigan artist Hubert Massey works in a variety of mediums in order to create his large public art installations, and is noted for his collaboration with communities. He graduated from Grand Valley State University in 1983 and continued his education at the University of London, Slade Institute of Fine Arts. Speaking on art, Massey says: "An artist should strive to understand his media. This includes understanding its origin and chemical makeup in order to utilize the full potential of the media. In doing so, an artist will never be technically bound by the media, but boundless."
