I know that they have helped out a friend of mine. His grandfather had
a place called The Hyde Park Museum. They assisted him with the
inventory and storage of works when the building they had been housed in
was sold. They also take care of the Beer Can House. Their specialty
is folk art. They also sponsor our Art Car Parade.
They can probably hook you up with someone who can help you out. Who
knows, maybe they can do more!
Good luck and I really enjoyed your website. Your grandfather was truly

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Scale Model of a Sculpture Park
I recently created www.wickhamstonepark.com to show
the art of my grandfather E.T. Wickham. He was a folk
artist in Palmyra,Tennessee who created life-size
concrete statues of politicians,Indian chiefs,
and religious figures among others.
Sadly, most of the statues are now vandalized and
beyond restoration, but I have been wondering about
the possibility of creating a scale model of his park
in better times. With this in mind I recently surveyed
the site to get measurements for statue placements and
posted this information as well as current photos of
the statues to the website.
Does anyone here know of any resources for
scale-modeling a sculpture park? Might there be some
college art class that would be interested in taking
this on as a class project?
