Meg Webster: Site-Specific Work

Meg Webster (b. 1944) has long been guided by an environmentalist impulse to celebrate and preserve the natural world. For her exhibition, the artist will critically engage with Ogunquit Museum of American Art’s singular site on three acres overlooking the Atlantic Coast. Webster plans an installation of land art in April activating the dynamic habitats encompassing OMAA’s immediate surroundings, including wetlands and intertidal zones. Inside the museum, opening in July, Webster will install works inspired by and sourced from the region’s rich natural resources such as ocean water, sumac, and moss.
