Carl Vandenheyden
2016
Recycled Metal Sculpture
Made from recycled steel oil tanks and found objects, Venderheyden's portfolio includes dozens of lifelike animals, birds and angels. In this sculpture, his largest creation to date, Vanderheyden captures the strength and movement of an extinct Pleistocene creature brought back to life.

Born in 1958 in Green Bay, Carl Vanderheyden spent most of his adult life working with his hands. However, in 2014 Vanderheyden bought his first welder, and his artistic career exploded. Examples of his signatures sculptural style can be seen throughout Brown County and across the nation.

"Tundra" is located at the entrance to Neville Public Museum, located at 210 Museum Place, Green Bay, Wisconsin 54303.
