Candle Trophy

This item is available for pick up at Headlands only

by Lauren DiCioccio

In a series of three hand-poured beeswax candles, current Affiliate Artist Lauren DiCioccio celebrates Headlands’ Building 952, the Gymnasium. Once home to service members’ basketball games and bowling matches, the Gym now comes to life with performances or installations by resident artists. The ephemeral nature of the candle is a poignant nod to the history of the space and its varied inhabitants over the years. This series is produced in collaboration with the Workshop Residence.
