Kara Walker Play Set

Here are some details of American artist Kara Walker's unforgettable Burning African Village Play Set with Big House and Lynching, 2006. Painted laser-cut steel.
 We've been following Walker's work for years. She has made the silhouette her own -- often filling entire galleries with her installations.
 The Brooklyn Museum bought this "play set" in 2008. 
Bill and I look for it every time we visit. 
 Is it very wrong to want one for ourselves?
Even a single fabulous unsettling piece?


  1. Wow- these are amazing. I love them. You're right to want one.

  2. These are so magical - love them all!!

  3. Shell -- reasons to visit Brooklyn. These Walkers won't disappoint.
