43-foot ‘tree’ being installed at NC Museum of Art

RALEIGH — The North Carolina Museum of Art is closed until April as a new building is completed, but work already is starting on installing new pieces of art.

A 43-foot, stainless steel, tree-like sculpture called “Askew” was being installed Tuesday and Wednesay outside the museum in Raleigh. Because the installation is occurring in an active
construction zone, the event is not open to the public.

“Askew” is part of a series of works by artist Roxy Paine that he describes as “dendroids” – arboreal or tree-like forms with elaborate branching structures. Paine’s structures are found at various museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he installed a tree-like sculpture titled “Maelstrom” on the roof.

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — A retired White House photographer who worked for five U.S. presidents and his wife were killed in a traffic accident on a North Carolina road.

A family member said Wednesday that 77-year-old Jack Kightlinger of Flat Rock and his 77-year-old wife, Adele, were killed in a two-car crash on Monday.

Kightlinger’s son-in-law Brad Fellrath of Charlotte said funeral arrangements were pending.

The Times-News of Hendersonville reported that the state Highway Patrol found an 18-year-old pickup truck driver crossed the center line and hit the Kightlingers’s car. A patrol spokeswoman said charges were pending Wednesday.

Kightlinger took behind-the-scenes photos of presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Ronald Reagan for 19 years through 1985.
