The Cairns at UVM's Wheelock Farm [SIV498] 

Published July 27, 2017 at 6:00 a.m.

7/9/17: For the past six years, Jacques-Paul Marton - also known as JP - has been building rock sculptures in the fields behind UVM's Wheelock Farm in South Burlington. Accompanied by his dog Cooper, JP has also built a wishing well for world peace, a bird sanctuary and an arch made of grape vines.

Eva spent the afternoon with JP and heard about the many local connections he has made through these random acts of beauty.

Music: Claude Debussy, "La Mer"

Frederic Chopin, "Nocturne op.9 no.1," Performed by Vadim Chaimovich
