This project was made possible by support from many people in the community, including T.J. Goetting, the owner of Dudley Island, and the Tides Institute and Museum of Art in Eastport. Funding was provided by a grant from the University of North Texas.
“On A Clear Day You Can See Forever” is a temporary public sculpture that is installed on Dudley Island in Maine from July 1 – July 18, 2016. The sculpture consists of a steel scaffolding structure that is 15 feet tall, 50 feet wide, and 8 feet deep, which supports 8-foot tall painted plywood letters that spell the word FOREVER. It is visible from Lubec, Maine, which is the most easternmost town in the contiguous United States.
