Maine Audubon Society has a very interesting installation, by Wendy Klemperer, along the fields and roadways leading to their main building in Falmouth. She has created an almost mythical land of 22 sculptures lurking in and about the farm grounds. Their webpage says it all. Klemerer "salvages industrial materials to construct expressive gestural sketches in steel. This exhibition features extirpated wildlife species including life size wolves, elk, caribou, and mountain lions along with native deer, fox and porcupines. Sculpture will be sited along the entry drive, woodland trails, by the pond and apple orchards of Gilsland farm, re-imagining these species on the Maine landscape." If you are traveling in southern Maine this fall, it's worth a detour. Quite neat!
