The first thing you see when you enter the festival grounds is this large sculpture made out of wet sand. Rain was in the forecast all day so I hope they had a tent at the ready, just in case. The detail was amazing.
As you can see, they were still working on it. I think there were at least two artists going at it.
For some reason this woman was walking around with a joey in a purse. Turns out she was there as a representative of the Kahalari Water Park in the Wisconsin Dells area, a popular tourist spot about 2.5 hours NW of Milwaukee. Another guy had a tiny little animal that looked like a miniature lemur that he was carrying around. Little kids (ok, and some of us adults) were going gaga over these adorable things. Good marketing ploy.
Shiny silver glass “rocks”.
Bird bath. Nice.
This is where kids can make art. These creations were hanging up to dry.
We had rain all last night and the ground was rather muddy. Looks like someone found that out by sitting on it. At least I hope that’s all that was.
Again, this was all from the http://lfoa.mam.org/ put on every year along the shore of Lake Michigan by the Milwaukee Art Museum. There is a listing of artists on the website, including those few shown here. There were many, many more in the tents and in the museum itself, but I am not good at taking photos of others’ artwork. Many artists posted signs saying “no photos please” so I just looked. These outside pieces were easier to shoot.
