Forest Beach Migratory Preserve

Port Washington

I am interested in the Forest Beach Migratory Preserve in Port Washington, because of the area’s proximity to Lake Michigan, and its connection to the Western Great Lakes Bird & Bat Observatory. 

This property is inspirational because of the material onsite capabilities and the beach's geology. I would like to make a series of sculptures utilizing construction techniques similar to the Pebble House in Port Washington, which was built in 1848 by a married couple with stones that they gathered on the shores of Lake Michigan. 

My resulting project will be a sculpture constructed with various stone patterns and grout harvested on the local beaches.
