(American, born 1958)

Location: Washington State University - Vancouver, Vancouver

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

From a Douglas fir that once stood on site, Stuart Schechter cut and reassembled a cross-section, adding symbols of Vancouver's history and a poem by David Wagoner.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Washington State University.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born and raised in Michigan, artist Stuart Schechter explores where and how art and technology coincide, and describes himself as being "always a tinkerer". He received a degree in mechanical engineering with a focus on robotics from Wayne State University in Detroit, a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1986, and then studied painting and sculpture at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where he met Ralph Helmick. Between 1993 and 2008, he worked collaboratively with Helmick to create sculptures and installations for public spaces. He is currently working as a solo artist and is based in Massachusetts.
