Atlanta Botanical Garden, GAINESVILLE

Known as The Myth Makers, Massachusetts-based artists Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein are inspired by events in the natural world and the mysterious nature of animals. The artists have presented more than 20 public works throughout the world at art museums, sculpture parks and urban centers from Taiwan to New York.

For the Gainesville exhibition, presented March 27 – October 31, the artists have created three sculptures, including a pair of cardinals, “Love Long Last” for the Gainesville exhibition, Wings of Wonder: Towering Works of Nature, that are seen as harbingers of good health, renewal and loving relationships. Each bird is 15 feet tall and, although monumental in scale, these ephemeral works are temporary in nature – they are made from natural materials such as bamboo, tree saplings and found objects, meant to last only several years before fading away.
