Rodney McMillian is known for his installations comprised of discarded mattresses, filing cabinets, wood paneling, chairs, bookshelves, and other found materials that suggest the weight of history. By using old objects, he recreates his own version of historic moments—often with overt references to domestic life, the education system, the civil government, and race relations. His hope is to remind his viewers of opinions or accounts that are in the minority or have been completely forgotten. Another recurring motif in his work is the amorphous cloth shape, taking the form of either stuffed appendages or large swaths. McMillian has even been known to sell his canvases by the square foot.
