Welcome

Untitled, welcome 2009

Gochman’s welcome, installed in the Lelong Drive esplanade leading to the New Orleans Museum of Art, greeted thousands of visitors to The Voodoo Experience 2009. welcome is a series of raised, grass covered mounds spelling out the word “welcome” in Braille. At 104 feet long, welcome is a large work. Reminiscent of Peru’s Nazca lines, whose patterns are discernible only from the air, the size of the Braille pattern in welcome transforms a single word into an environment – a space that viewers can explore and enjoy.
