Description

For the Omni Nashville Hotel, part of the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum and Music City Center complex, Dolan created a set of five artworks inspired by Southern style icon Nudie Cohn, originator of the “rhinestone cowboy.” His “Nudie Suits”, worn by icons like Elvis Presley and Hank Williams, featured lush hand-embroidery and embellishment. Dolan captured this ornate style with intricate, mirrored patterns cut from a white foreground to reveal a colorful background of salvaged materials.
