The 411: As part of its 10th anniversary celebration, the Nasher embarked on the ambitious Xchange project, commissioning 10 public works from 10 artists for 10 spots around the city. Smith was the official photographer for the project, and around 100 art enthusiasts came to the Nasher to celebrate the unveiling of Nasher Xchange Volume 2, which Smith signed during the intimate affair. The book retails for $60; volumes 1 and 2 are $120. Both are available at the Nasher Sculpture Center store, and Nasher Xchange wraps up on February 16.
