“Stand of Elms” 2011
I just installed an illuminated, glass Sculpture at the University of Maine, Orono. It’s 4’x4’x5.5’
The photographs wrap around the cube as one continuous landscape and capture a group of American Elm trees in Castine, Maine.
History: The University’s campus mall was at one time lined with American Elm trees – almost all of which suffered the blight of Dutch Elm Disease. Dr. Richard Campana (1918 – 2005, professor emeritus at the University of Maine, Orono) was an expert on Dutch Elm Disease and helped develop/administer a vaccine that saved innumerable American Elm trees including more than 300 in the town of Castine, Maine.
