Andy Wasserman lives and works out of her home in Vershire, except when she's working on a big public installation. Frequently collaborating with other artists, she's created artwork all over the state and the country. Cyclists on the Lake Champlain Bikeways might recognize a "sculptural rest stop" she worked on in on Isle La Motte, using local quarried stone.
Visitors to Battery Park in Burlington might recognize her work in the millennium Sculpture-a shiny metallic spire mounted on granite columns. It actually contains a time capsule that will be unveiled in 2099.
And if you've flown out of Burlington in recent years you've probably hustled past the hand-carved panels depicting apple trees and poems that she and Tunbridge artist Elizabeth Billings created.
As part of Vermont Edition's monthly "Visiting Artists" series, VPR's Jane Lindholm paid a visit to Andy Wasserman's studio, where her private work is of a much smaller scale.
