Pictured above is the Grazing Doe, an amazing animal metal sculpture by New York artist Wendy Klemperer. Other than the said deer sculpture, Klemperer’s collection of wild animals include Lumbering Stag, Scratching Doe, a porcupine, a wolf and three other deer. All these metal sculptures will be showcased near Portland International Jetport. Currently, these sculptures are standing still at .Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm in Falmouth. Klemperer has used recycled steel to create these animal sculptures.
These sculptures will come to Portland International Jetport within one month as an art lover in Falmouth, William D. Hamill, has purchased the herd of deer in order to beautify the jetport. The metal sculptures will be placed along the road which connects the Congress Street and the terminal. Airport officials want to give a natural look to the whole thing and thatâs why they have planned to plant trees at the entrance to the terminal. Metal deers between real trees! This is something unique. Hamill is a board member of the Portland Museum of Art.
Hamill wanted to donate his purchase and the Portland Public Arts Committee readily accepted his noble gesture. But Hamill will have to wait for some more time before his art collection officially gets placed at the jetport. The herd of deer will be included in the art collection of the city only after the approval of the City Council and it is expected that the council will ratify the plan. There seems to be no reason for the council to disapprove Hamillâs plan, who is willing to pay for installation as well.
