“The World According to Federico Uribe”

Woodson Art Museum

Columbia-born, Miami-based artist Federico Uribe creates exuberant sculptures and immersive installations from everyday objects. Finding beauty in simple and sometimes startling materials – from books, colored pencils, wood fragments, and shoes to shell casings – Uribe transforms objects from their original, utilitarian purposes to create boldly beautiful surroundings. Deconstructed books morph into trees, disassembled leather saddles become horses and bullet shell casings become bunnies. For the Woodson Art Museum, Uribe will create a large-scale, site-specific, walk-in environment.

“Dynamic Designs: The Serigraphs of Anne Senechal Faust”
Anne Faust’s silk-screens affirm her mastery of this medium and a deep knowledge of and affinity for birds and their habitats. Named the museum’s Birds in Art Master Wildlife Artist in 1999, she was the first woman and the first printmaker to receive this recognition.

“Fowl Play”  Decorative Duck Decoys
Duck decoys long have been used to lure waterfowl. Typically made of wood, these life-sized sculptures range from simple bird shapes to intricately carved and finely painted examples. Some are strictly utilitarian; others are sculptural works of art.

In the Sculpture Garden
“The Dance”

Celebrating a focus on avian art, this site-specific sculpture of two thirty-foot sandhill cranes, titled “The Dance,” was created in June 2016 by Andy Moerlein and Donna Dodson, known as The Myth Makers. More than 500 saplings were harvested in the Wausau, Wisconsin, area and trimmed by Museum staff and volunteers to enable The Myth Makers to construct “The Dance.” This photo of Andy and Donna on June 25, 2016, shows them proudly in front of their finished sculpture on the Woodson Art Museum campus.

Inspired by the way the seasonal migration of sandhill cranes to their Wisconsin nesting grounds marks the passage of time, Boston artists­-The Myth Makers-Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein, constructed 25-foot-tall sandhill cranes of Wausau-area saplings, on-site. (June 2016)
