Steven Siegel’s site-specific sculpture, Let’s fan out, was inspired by Wausauâ€™s logging and paper industry roots. Siegelâ€™s work raises questions about the environmental impact of what humans produce, consume, and leave behind and what can be done with discarded materials. Siegel creates public art in natural and urban environments, generally using recycled materials, and is driven by a desire to create beauty from the detritus that human beings leave in their wake. The sculpture, supported by a wooden frame, comprises â€“ literally â€“ tons of staked paper assembled by Siegel and a corps of Museum volunteers in May 2011.
