"Forever" is a temporary public sculpture that was originally installed on Dudley Island in Maine from July 1 - July 18, 2016. The sculpture consisted of a steel scaffolding structure that was 15 feet tall, 50 feet wide, and 8 feet deep, which supported 8-foot tall painted plywood letters that spell the word FOREVER. It was visible from Lubec, Maine, which is the easternmost town in the contiguous United States.
The sculpture was inspired by the heavy fog that often blankets the landscape in the Downeast coastal region of Maine. The intent was for FOREVER to appear and disappear in the landscape during different weather conditions, becoming visible and prominent on clear, sunny days, and barely visible on foggy and overcast days.
This project was made possible by support from many people in the community, including Devon Kelley-Yurdin, T.J. Goetting, and the Tides Institute and Museum of Art. Funding was provided by a grant from the University of North Texas.
