For the last few months, an artist has been hard at work at the Fontenelle Forest Nature Center. Visitors have been able to see Kirk Vaughn-Robinson at work, creating an oversized sculpture of Cernunnos, a Celtic god of the forest, and some hard-to-miss, 4-foot origami bats for Halloween.
Now the artist-in-residence has one final project to represent his time at Fontenelle Forest during its “Green Revolution” exhibit. Today, he will unveil both a children's book he wrote and an outdoor sculpture he created based on characters in the book.
