Sculptor Matt Weir, commissioned by an anonymous donor to develop a memorial for Barry Bingham Jr., is installing his massive Earth Measure at Bernheim over the next three days.  The sculpture is a landscape scale installation that includes monolithic geometric shapes constructed of limestone blocks milled at Indiana Limestone.  He is assisted by helper Ezra Kellerman, a crane crew from Padgett Inc. and Bernheim staff.  It’s located on the edge of the Big Prairie near the Education Center.  When completed this will be Bernheim’s largest sculpture other than the land itself.  Here’s a slideshow of the installation process on April 9th, 2013.
