Barbed wire sheep – installation by Tyler Buswell

April 30th-May 16th installation of twenty barbed wire sheep sculptures in front of William Art Hall, 72 University Place.

The barbed wire flock of sheep is composed of life size sheep forms made from gathered Vermont barbed wire. The installation recognizes the extensive 19th century sheep raising industry in Vermont, recalling former agricultural traditions and poses questions for the future of the human-terrestrial relationship as expressed through agriculture.

A brief history of the industry and other material provided at the site. Installation will be accompanied by the artist most days.

Artist Tyler Buswell
