The Langlais Sculpture Preserve was the 90-acre homestead of renowned Maine artist, Bernard “Blackie” Langlais and his wife Helen. “Blackie” created more than 3,000 indoor and outdoor works of art during his lifetime that are unique, edgy, very imaginative, and engaging to young and old. The Preserve is located at 576 River Road, Cushing, ME 04563 and is open from dawn to dusk with a 1/4 mile ADA-accessible path.
- Twelve large wooden sculptures were restored on site by the Kohler Foundation Inc. who gifted the property to the Georges River Land Trust in November 2015.
