Overview

From heroic war memorials to gigantic fiberglass fish, Public Sculpture in Wisconsin documents more than 750 outdoor sculptures in the state of Wisconsin. Included are monuments, memorials, and masterpieces of traditional public statuary as well as religious grottoes, chainsaw and fiberglass creations, native American effigy mounds, and visionary environments created by self-taught artists.

The book includes an inventory of public sculpture from all seventy-two counties in the state, amply illustrated with photographs and maps and organized by region, county, and city. This inventory is accompanied by several chapters on the history of Wisconsin’s public sculture and on modern sculpture sponsored by governments, corporations, and communities. The authors also offer valuable advice on how to go about commissioning, conserving, and maintaining outdoor sculpture. A special color section documents the recent conservation by Anton Rajer of the statue “Wisconsin,” the golden figure atop the Capitol dome.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A treasure map to the state’s outdoor sculptures, monuments, and artistic heritage, with text that captures a fascinating sense of the local stories behind these public creations!”—Joanne Cubbs, former curator at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta

“Happy the state that has such a treasure as this volume! With the publication of Public Sculpture in Wisconsin, Rajer and Style have not only produced an enlightening guide for Wisconsin residents to appreciate their environment, but they have contributed to the important debates about the process of collective memory and public commemoration.”—Gary Fine, Northwestern University
