Carousel Of Happiness. A unique, participatory exhibit of folk art. The 36 carousel animals were born of the carver’s imagination – a labor of love that took 22 years and counting. He designed and carved each of them from basswood and decorated them with acrylic paint using techniques employed by carousel carvers for more than a century. The collection includes a horse, of course, and a pig, a dolphin, a dragon-boat, a great blue heron, a cow and a load of whimsical surprises.
