“The World According to Federico Uribe”
Colombia-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.

New to the Collection

“Dynamic Designs: The Serigraphs of Anne Senechal Faust”
Anne Faust’s vibrant 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”
Inspired by the way the seasonal migration of sandhill cranes to their Wisconsin nesting grounds marks the passage of time, Boston artists­ Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein constructed 25-foot-tall sandhill cranes of Wausau-area saplings, on-site. (June 2016)
The Woodson is at 700 N. 12th St., Wausau.
