The Emergency Ark - Scott Hocking - Monday, June 24, 2019

The informational sign was finally installed this weekend at the site of Scott Hocking's art sculpture called The Emergency Ark located by Oak Beach Road between Caseville and Port Austin, Michigan. Clicking on photos will enlarge them.

I brought back the old sign to hang in either Sans Souci or San Salvatore (my pole barn or my home).

After we were finished with the installation of the sign, a couple and their dog Nashville (Nash) came by. We pointed out that if they said something in the spot where they were standing on the road into the site, there would be an echo. That's apparently a "sweet spot" where conditions are just right to hear voices bounce off the Barn Ark.

They mentioned that Bob Sestok, a Detroit artist and sculptor, has one or more structural pieces up here in Michigan's Thumb; they had been looking for it (them?) unsuccessfully. If anyone knows where Bob's works are, I would love to look for them to add to my collection of major art works in the Thumb.
