The Concrete Park in Wisconsin
The Concrete Park in Wisconsin is bizarre. Â Here’s the brief, brief history (long version here):
In the 1950s, ex-lumberjack, Fred Smith, creates a shit-load of sculptures over 14 years in his 60s and 70s. They’re concrete, decorated with glass bottles, shells, and other objects. In the ’70s, he dies, the Kohler Foundation purchase the site, and the Wisconsin Arts Council starts restoring the sculptures.
The sculptures are creepy, beautiful, impressive, and massive. Â Here are some pictures.
