HESPER

$5,000 Awarded
 

The schooners, “Hesper” and “Luther Little” laid abandoned in Wiscasset’s harbor from the 1930’s until the late 1990’s when they became icons of the Maine Coast.  “Project: HESPER” commemorates these lost icons in the form of a public sculpture that will be installed on the waterfront in Wiscasset, Maine. The sculpture consists of insulated water pipes covered in a white pvc jacketing that will spell out the word “HESPER”.  Each interconnected letter will be approximately 6′ high and 3′ wide and will terminate from the letter “R” in a public drinking fountain.
