Hally Thacher’s art career began with her first solo show at the Main Street Studio in Santa Monica, California, in 1984. In 1990, she was awarded the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Award for painting, and she produced her first public installation of a mural in 1991 for Earth Day in Los Angeles.
For ten years after moving to New York City, Hally’s art was exhibited widely, including the prestigious Works on Paper show at the Armory on Park Avenue, and in 1999 she was part of a homage to Marcel Duchamp at the Abraham Lubusky Gallery in New York, an exhibition that went on to the Venice Biennale in 2001. That year Hally began creating her permanent art installations in the high desert outside Palm Springs, where the concept of the House Port® was conceived. While continuing to exhibit her sculptural work, in 2005 she developed a line of flat-pack, eco-friendly furniture that engendered the idea of the Pop-Up House, the prototype of which was built in northern California in 2008. She developed her website, www.ehouseport.com, and has had a series of webisodes entitled “Home Green Home” on YouTube.
Hally appeared in the documentary Art City and her work has been the subject of major articles in The New York Times, ARTnews, The Utne Reader, The Chicago Tribune, The San Francisco Chronicle, and in European publications.
