A group of collaborative sculptors in Corte Madera, California, call themselves Meadowsweet Dairy after the old dairy cowshed where they have their studio.
"We share a deep commitment to the notion that art has a job to do. Much of our work aspires to be both aesthetically powerful and practical. We clean up neglected, trash filled areas and make their beauty accessible through our site-pieces. We worked with scientists on Southeast Farallon Island to stack concrete rubble into a sculptural form to create bird nesting habitat and a blind from which to study their behavior. By presenting found natural objects and extraordinary locations as art we hope to increase public appreciation for beauty around us."
