Mr Stag 5
Elsewhere, Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S.A
Installation, museum video, tourist brochure
With the help of Wade Rivers (museum founder) we take a journey through the complex legacy of Mr Stag (a hosiery salesman from Greensboro, North Carolina). Mr Stag had a unique hobby, he fashioned large scale maps of America’s states and counties from damaged nylon stockings.
In 1973 a small article appeared in the Greensboro News and record. The man of maps had vanished and with him the answers to his unexplained equations. Stags Hosiery Museum no longer operates but amongst all the items at Elsewhere there can still be found copies of the Museum brochure and the introductory Museum video.
