Ru “fish” Porter

Filed under: Hooked on Arts, Library and Museum — lessie @ 6:43 pm

For a while, I was quite irritated with this fish sculpture’s title. But today, as I was posting the picture, I realized — Rufus Porter, duh. Why not Google him? And like light dawning, the sculpture made sense. Rufus Porter was a 19th-century artist, inventor, even muralist. A museum dedicated to his life and work is in Bridgton, Maine. I feel warmer toward this fish sculpture now and more appreciative of its detail and style. It even makes me want to pick up a paint brush. 🙂 Currently swimming in the lobby of the Anderson County Library. A couple more shots are here.



  1. I like it, too!
    So, did you pick-up a paintbrush?
