The Greatest

The Greatest is a public art painting/sculpture installed at King Farm in Woodstock, Vermont for the 2018 LandARTLab exhibit which opens on August 25, 4 pm to 7 pm. The exhibit is free and open to the public; and will continue through November. The title is, in part, a reference to Mohammed Ali who conceived of the poem, Me We, when asked for one by a student following a speech at Harvard University in 1975. Although it is the shortest poem in the English language, it is also enormously profound.

The piece is also inspired by the teachings of Lama Surya Das who has mentioned the poem in both his talks and books. 

LandARTLab is an extension of Sculpturefest where I have installed Home Dream Home, described in the previous post. The two properties are joined by a path and, together, cover hundreds of acres -- making it one of the largest public art exhibits in the region.
