Best known for artworks carved in granite and basalt, Don Justin Meserve (1938 – 2010) loved to demonstrate sculpting methods, particularly at the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium where he completed a massive installation piece for the waterfront at Winter Harbor and at the J.C. Stone Symposium in 2010. A teacher at heart, Don nurtured many protégés and influenced a generation of Maine sculptors. Don bequeathed 56 stone sculptures to the Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium to be sold to promote art education in Maine.
