DAVID BYRD: Ten Stops (July-December 2017) was an art pilgrimage of ten exhibitions that illuminated the life and artistic trajectory of artist David Byrd. Each exhibition in the series, including a retrospective at the home and studio Byrd designed and built in the Catskills, highlighted a specific theme and was shown in a location that correlated to the work.
Ten Stops mapped Byrd’s odyssey from Brooklyn to Peekskill and West Point, continued north to Delhi, Franklin and Sidney Center, on to Cooperstown, with a final stop in Seattle. The body of work explored the paradox that this man, who had great difficulty establishing relationships and cloistered himself away from others, was leading a journey to better understand the human experience.
