Here's a link to the latest project I just fabricated for Kiki Smith. It's an Art Production Fund Project and is installed at the Last Lot on the corner of 8th Avenue and 46th Street in NYC, just a block from Times Square. It will be in place through September 4th. The amazing metal framework is by my neighbors at Serett Metalworks.

I like the superstar billboard in the background, nice touch! It must have been a fun project to work on. Congratulations on it's completion.

Is there some documentation on the fence so people know who the woman is that is being honored , and her story?

There is a sign on the fence with basically the same information as is given on the website.
Incidentally, one of Josephine Baker's sons owns a restaurant just a block or two away from the sight. I don't know if he's seen it or what his reaction might have been.
