I like to see inspiration spread. Art is a conversation, it is complete when it is shared. If it sparks a creative response from another artist all the better. The classic poem Wynken, Blynken & Nod was written by Denver poet, Eugene Field, in 1889.
In 1918, the mayor of Denver commissioned Mabel Landrum Torry to sculpt a larger-than-life limestone carving of the fishermen three.
Having fond memories of the scene I created an accessible tactile version in 2004.
And now in 2016, Team USA is following up with a grand scale 11’ tall snow sculpture in front of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, complete with beautiful, dramatic lighting!
