WANDERING WISCONSIN ARTIST ENVIRONMENT
THE EXTRAORDINARY WORK MADE BY THESE ARTISTS WILL LEAVE YOU IN AWE.
Among the grandest, most astonishing, and original visions in American art are the large-scale works of artist-environment builders. Artist-environment builders have transformed homes, yards, meeting halls, churchyards, or other spaces into otherworldly realms. In the hands of these artists, patches of wilderness have become transcendent kingdoms; intimate interiors are forays into fantasy; structures and yards are simultaneously museum and masterpiece. Known primarily to their local audiences, art environments spring from an individual’s relationship to her or his home ground. The results are spaces that have been transformed—often over a period of many years—into multifaceted artistic realms.
