More Information

The Taubman Museum of Art is pleased to present a major site-specific fabric installation by nationally recognized artist Rachel B. Hayes that merges the artist’s fascination with notions of fragility and power, painting and quilt making, and the interplay of light and shadow. Inspired by the unique architecture of the Taubman’s three-story atrium designed by Randall Stout, Hayes created a suspended fabric sculpture exclusively out of multi-colored nylon, light gels, and thread. Hayes’ Not Fade Away occupies an ambitious footprint extending eighty feet from the ground level and acts as a canopy over the 1,000-square-foot atrium floor. Appearing as a massively layered stained glass patchwork quilt, Hayes’ fiber-based sculpture bathes the space in vibrant, changing color as natural light enters the stunning glass façade of the atrium.
