As they planned for a multi-million dollar renovation to their 164-acre park, the North Carolina Museum of Art commissioned artist Jim Hodges to reinvent their existing smokestack as a permanent art installation. The brick masonry smokestack is one of the few structures still remaining from the prison that previously occupied the site. SGH assisted the project architect by evaluating the existing smokestack and modifications proposed by the artist.
