A site-specific installation by Anne Peabody commissioned for 21c Museum, Wheel of Fortune is a physical record inspired from the artist’s memory of the tornado that leveled much of Louisville on April 3rd, 1974. The work consists of broken eggs, flashlights, dolls’ heads, turkey basters, and batteries made of wood as well as found objects made of glass swirl together that form a massive funnel cloud in 21c’s Atrium Gallery.

Peabody made the carved wooden objects in Wheel of Fortune by hand and has invited other carvers and wood turners (some of whom lived through the tornado themselves), to contribute pieces for the installation. The found objects of glass also include items given to the artist by friends and neighbors.
