While in residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, artist Michael Beitz (previously) built this 10-foot-long outdoor picnic table that seemingly overflows its space on a gallery terrace and drips down a railing to a level below. The table was built from laminated poplar and marine epoxy and a video about its development and construction can be seen here. Special thanks to the Bemis Center for providing imagery for this post.
