Renowned American photographer and installation artist Sandy Skoglund builds elaborate sets, furnishing them with carefully selected objects in intensely vibrant colors. After months of creating the tableau, Skoglund then photographs the deliberately staged scene, complete with actors.

In 2009, the McNay aquired one of Sandy Skoglund's complete installations, “The Cocktail Party”, her transformation of a familiar social ritual with every surface covered with bright orange Cheez Doodles. Both the installation and the photograph are on view February 16 to May 8, 2011.

While Skoglund is at the McNay to re-install “The Cocktail Party”, she presents a public lecture on her approach to seeing and creating.
