Artist's Statement

Kelly McCafferty clusters small insignificant things together—candy wrappers, ticket stubs, tokens, lotto scratch-offs, buttons, stickers, stamps, cards, bits of string, etc. These are the kinds of things she pulls out of her pockets at the end of the day. These are the things she picks up on the street, the things people give to her, the things she saves, the things she keeps.
