The World of Dr. Evermor

10 Jun

Apparently it is now my job to document little-known places of AWESOME just chilling by the side of the road. I can’t claim any credit for discovering this one; apparently J. has been going there for years, and she made us stop in on our way back to Madtown from camping.

Today’s place of AWESOME: The World of Dr. Evermor. I’ll let you visit the website for the gritty details, but basically Dr. Evermore and his compatriots take discarded metal and turn it into fantastic sculptures. Admission is totally free, although they do accept donations, and volunteer help. I’m going to try to get out there sometime in the next few months to pitch in however I can (read: anything not involving heavy lifting), possibly with M. and J. Or Mitu, if she wants to come and visit.* Though I have long since given up on any pretensions of being a metalworker (unlike J., who makes awesome jewelry and wants to learn how to weld), the place is incredibly inspiring.

I really want to encourage people to see the park in person, so I’m only going to post a few pictures, but here’s a taste of the AWESOME there is to behold at the World of Dr. Evermor. Do yourself a favor and swing by if you’re ever in southern WI.

*We’re definitely going the next time you’re in WI, even if that’s November

        Because that was clearly the worst part of that dining experience.
