Legends of Paul Bunyan, Lumberjack chronicled the life and work of Paul Bunyan with firsthand accounts and readymade myths. The Paul Bunyan theme and its futurity was the focus of the exhibition. This expedient hero of American artistic history has become an anti-hero in the new millennium. We also explored this abandonment and restored for posterity a truly American source of inspiration, Paul Bunyan.
