Sculptor Joseph Wheelwright's installation at Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, MA will be uprooted in November 2010.
Using trees from his home in Vermont, Wheelwright's tree sculptures stand up to 30 feet tall. Twisted limbs and branches give a Tolkien-like appearance to his works. Check out the gallery above to see his art and let your imagination fly.
Implications - Museums are a great way for artists to display works that have the ability to change the way people think about things. The featured exhibit is a good example of using art as a way to express the beauty of nature and gives people a reason to want to preserve it. With deforestation and global warming, people need to realize that everything they do impacts the world.
