Down to Earth Art
Held annually in West Stocktonborough, Massachusetts, the Berkshire Mud Sculpture Invitational draws artists from as far away as Albany. Watch them at work, including Lloyd “Mudhen” Fletcher, whose winning entry from last year–a full-sized replica of the Mayflower–was described by one attendee as “quite moving, especially after the rain started.”

Biography:

Ken Sheldon was a pre-med art major at the University of New Hampshire. The medical schools of America were not amused. After college, he worked in a clinic for migrant farmworkers in California, where he learned to speak Spanish poorly, sang old union songs, and once gave César Chavez a cholera shot. He went on to become a writer, editor, cartoonist, actor, novelist, singer/songwriter, playwright, and humorist. His humor column “Only in New England” appears in every issue of Yankee Magazine. He performs as Fred Marple from the town of Frost Heaves, NH, and writes suspense fiction as Michael Manley.
