ART CONSULTING + PROJECTS


We love creating Wind Forests for botanical gardens and arboretums, and their visitors love it after we finishin fact millions of them have.

City of Boston

In 2020 we were contacted by representatives of the city and asked to consider an exhibit at the Charlestown Navy Yardwhere the USS Constitution is moored. This simple exhibit of 35 pieces was the result. Needless to say we spent time at Cape Cod, the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, and dining in the North End. 

Dallas Arboretum & Gardens

This world-famous botanical garden contacted us in 2017 and asked us to set up a mind-blowing exhibit. So Paul and Lyman caught a flight to Dallas, toured the gardens, and decided on an exhibit of 140 sculptures. It was up for a year and viewed by nearly 1 million people. We met scores of new clients, and of course had dinner in the Fort Worth Stockyards.

Dawes Arboretum

When Dawes Arboretum contacted us in 2019 to set up an exhibit there, we gladly agreed. It's located just outside Columbus, OH and the grounds are absolutely magical, full of ancient walnut trees, oaks, hickories, and pines. The exhibit, comprised of 65 Wind Sculptures, was up for a full year. Thanks again to Luke and everyone else at Dawes.

Disney World

A designer for Disney fell in love with the Wind Sculptures, asked us to visit, and wound up selecting ten sculptures for the Coronado Springs Resort. Everything was installed to withstand hurricane-level winds. An added perk was free tickets to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Thanks again to David and everyone at Disney.

Morris Arboretum

Morris Arboretum is part of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and is located in Chestnut Hill just north of the city. As with each project, Lyman and Paul flew to Philly, made recommendations, and installed. The exhibit was up for a year and we met many fine PA clients, and several visits to Independence Hall.

Phipps Conservatory & Gardens

This legendary conservatory was founded by Henry Phipps Jr. in 1893, in Pittsburgh, PA. He was partner to Andrew Carnegie, both of whom were Robber Barons during the Gilded Age but both, fortunately, went on to become great philanthropists. Working with the staff of this magnificent institution was an honor. We also loved playing Frisbee in Schenley Park.
