I received such complete and incredible support from Locust for my exhibit; it was as if I was given the key to make the space my temporary studio.  I was able to experiment with new ways of approaching sculpture within an installation. ... Looking back, it was a pivotal show in defining how I form ideas on exhibition-making.

 – Jim Drain, 2010 exbibiting artist
