About the Work:

In the winter of 2002, the Haliburton Sculpture Forest contracted with the artists Mary Anne Barkhouse and Michael Belmore to be artists-in-residence in the Haliburton Highlands Secondary School and work with the senior art students. Michael and Mary Anne worked with the students in the winter and spring, teaching the process of creating public sculpture – from concept to drawings to models to creating the sculpture out of clay to making a plaster cast to casting the sculpture in cement to installation. The lamp post was donated to the students for their sculpture by the Municipality of Minden Hills who were replacing their lamp posts on the main street of Minden.
