Longtime admirers of Kelley’s haunting, sorrowful works in sculpture and installation were still mourning the artist’s tragic suicide when curators at the Detroit Museum of Contemporary Art erected this replica-on-wheels of his childhood home, in May. In addition to providing a reverent tribute to the hometown artist, the mobile home also provided a space for some creative curating and museum education, with the ground floor functioning as a venue for events and public displays.
