This temporary public sculpture features forms inspired by pavilions built during Waukesha’s Great Springs Era, and asks questions about our current relationships to both water and historic architecture. I created the work following archival research, interviews with local residents, and through collaboration with community members, including local artists and area youth. The sculpture was created from structural lumber and repurposed barnwood and will be on view into the fall semester.
The campus-community collaborative art project was funded by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Mary L. Nohl Fund and I was selected following a competitive international design competition.
An opening reception will be held on Carroll University’s Main Lawn on Friday, June 12 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
