Dr. Evermor’s Art Park Near Baraboo

5-14-12

As you can see, art is everywhere in Wisconsin.

Artist Tom Every created this steampunk fantasy land of sculptures and strange creatures made of scrap metal. You can see some of from Highway 12 just below the Baraboo hills. Last year we finally decided to stop and look around. What a fascinating place! His crowning achievement is “The Foreveratron”, a huge structure that looks like a big time machine. They even participate in the popular pastime of geocaching.

We came to the Aluminum Foil Hat zone.  They had a funny contraption that made two foil hats at a time. Funny! Here we are posing with our new hats.

On site is Lady Eleanor Every, an artist in her own right. We posed for a picture with her, Tom’s ill health prevents him from being there also so we didn’t meet him. She is a gracious lady and is happy to chat or take a picture with you. She also directed us to a great natural area we visited soon after, Pewit’s Nest.
