Woodson Art Museum Press Release

This Week at the Woodson
Monday, August 29 - Sunday, September 4, 2011

Three New Exhibitions from Woodson Art Museum Collection Now on View:
A Collective Journey features about 50 stunning works collected by the Museum throughout the last 10 years by well-known and influential artists such as John James Audubon, three generations of Wyeth artists (N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth), Andy Warhol, and Roger Tory Peterson and George Sutton. (Located in the South Gallery)

Small by Design features small-scale sculptures, many of which were gifts from Birds in Art artists. (Located in the Decorative Arts Gallery)

Drawn from the Collection features sketches and watercolors from
2011 Birds in Art artists. (Located in the Visitor Services Gallery)

View Repurposed Paper Sculpture
Sculptor-in-residence Steven Siegel has named his Woodson Art Museum sculpture
"Let's fan out." In mid-May Siegel directed the creation of a gently curing wall made of repurposed paper that will grace the sculpture garden for several years to come, weathering to resemble an exposed hillside comprising layers of ancient rock. This acclaimed artist is interested in how his biodegradable sculptures visually impact their surroundings and how they change over time. A corps of volunteers and Museum staff helped Siegel create the sculpture from more than 24,000 tons of donated paper.
Drop by during regular Museum hours (Tuesday-Friday, 9am-4pm;
Saturday & Sunday, Noon-5pm) to see the finished product.

Member Rick Eyre Photographing Bears in Orr Minnesota

Awesome photographing in Orr Minnesota last week. These bears are not in an enclosure of any type, they are not tame, and no they don't do tricks.
I had to show up very very early and attend "Bear Camp" for a couple hours with a supervisor where they teach you all about what to do and how to do it ( don't look them in the eyres, NEVER turn your back, Never run away, speak very softly to them, stay tem feet away, yada, yada, yada, and then they will leave you alone and let you photograph the rest of the day if you seem OK.
They sell tickets between 5 and 8 PM and only allow those people way up on the overhead deck.  No tripods.
