Sedrick Huckaby Makes Art for the People: From the Streets of Poly to a U.S. President

July 31, 2019 | By Michael Hoinski

Sedrick Huckaby is a Big Momma’s boy. The Fort Worth contemporary artist is devoted to the spirit of his late grandmother, Hallie Beatrice Carpenter, or “Big Momma,” and finds inspiration in her century-old home. Located in Fort Worth’s Polytechnic Heights neighborhood, or Poly to locals, the house’s raw shiplap walls are adorned with Huckaby’s paintings of family and neighbors. Huckaby creates works here, but next
year the space will take on new life when Huckaby opens it as a project space for artists, tentatively called Big Momma’s House.
