Art In America

Annual Edition

Russell Crotty


Using ballpoint pen on paper, California artist Russell Crotty makes painstakingly detailed drawings of the night sky, which he then wraps around spheres and hangs in various formations. This show featuring works Crotty has made since 1996 contains an installation along with the artist’s large-format sketchbooks. It is on view at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, June 27-Oct. 5, 2003, and travels to the Miami Art Museum, Mar. 4- June 27, 2004.
