Installation Success at the Maryhill Museum of Art

We loaded all five family members on a trailor and headed up the Columbia Gorge to install 'Familia' at the Maryhill Art Museum in Maryhill, WA. My wife Kim Campbell and son Tamaio even tagged along for a lovely drive. After dodging peacocks and other outdoor sculpture we were able to get the trailer into place in a sweet spot next to the installation site. In order to withstand gale winds in the Gorge we used about 30 bags of concrete to anchor each piece down. Without the help of Lee Musgrave, the able-bodied grounds crew and my good friend Lee Imonen I'd have met my match on this installation for sure. The Outdoor Sculptural Invitational is in a few weeks and I can't wait to see all the other work that assembles there.
