Bernd Haussmann will speak about “connectivity and self-experiencing. In short, on the inner-world-of-the-outer-world-of-the-inner-world. Presence and now”.
7/17/19 Sculptor Thomas Berger gave a presentation (photos here) on the creation of Millie the Whale— the first Art & Play functional sculpture in Rockport’s newly renovated Millbrook Meadow. Millie is created from granite quarried from Johnson’s Quarry in Rockport. The stone traveled to Berger’s studio in Kittery, Maine where it became Millie.
