You may not even notice it at first. Your driving along a country road enjoying the sites of grazing animals, crops emerging and fields broken by wind breaks provided by trees planted long ago. Then you spot it. The Ark.
The grey timber looks warped and wrapped. The old planks, taken from the virgin forests that once dominated the thumb have been intertwined. What was once a working farm building is now an art form. It sits among debris from decades of agriculture work. A rope is draped along a fieldstone wall.
The Emergency Ack was completed by sculpturing artist Scott Hocking in 2015. He has transformed an 1800s barn into a large object denoting sanctuary and safety. The Ark can be found about a mile south of Oak Beach on Oak Beach road and Fehner.
