The contemporary artist Lonnie Holley creates assemblage sculptures using found objects that he then places in his multilayered yard art environment. With the rise in prestige of folk art, many art galleries and museums have displayed the works of Holley, removing them from the yard art environment and placing them in the gallery setting. This paper addresses how meaning changes when the context of Holley’s artworks changes.
