Blue Mountain Lake Museum acquires new art with an old flair.
“The Guide” is a one of a kind sculpture designed and made especially for the museum, to capture the Adirondack history and the relationship between the wilderness and a guide’s life.
Artist miChelle M. Vara used the Museums logo as the inspiration.
An Adirondack Guide boat has important characteristics which are specifically visually highlighted as are the Guide, Gordon’s.
The sculpture stands 12’ tall 15’ long and 5’ wide made with re-thought metal, colored in translucent paint and finished with clear.
Vara has done many historical pieces using recycled metals, funded through grants and the private sector. She successfully chooses metal for its past history to tell a story by way of un-conscious perception.
