Skipping Stones

An "endless" pile of stones shaped by Lake Superior and the shores of Rabbit Island. Each piece of smooth Jacobsville sandstone is stamped with a precise outline of the island. Visitors are invited to take a stone away with them, either to keep as a memento or – ideally – transpose into another body of water.

The stones are replenished as needed to maintain a pile on museum floor.

Specifications: Rabbit Island stones, stamp ink.
Dimension variable, approximately 28in (71cm) diameter pile.
