Internationally acclaimed environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy, renowned for using natural materials to create striking images and unusual structures, marked the end of his eight-year term as an A.D. White Professor-At-Large with the construction of one of his signature cairns in Cornell's Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary. The cairn is a recurring form in Goldsworthy's work; he has created them out of tree branches, ice and stone.
The cairn project was funded by the Program for Andrew D. White Professors-at-Large, which began in 1965 to bring distinguished scholars to Cornell to interact with students and faculty.
To find the Sapsucker Woods cairn, follow the Hoyt-Pileated Trail that begins across the road from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology entrance. The cairn, built of locally quarried stone, sits on the right, a few minutes' walk down the trail.
