Hank Murta Adams, Ogunquit Outing, 1982, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Elmerina and Paul Parkman, 2002.73.1
Hank Murta Adams is inspired by portraiture. Ogunquit Outing is an autobiographical sculpture that represents a scene from his early childhood when he and his family were visiting relatives on the coast in Ogunquit, Maine. During the course of cocktail hour for the adults, they realized that the children were missing and feared they were walking near the steep cliffs that descend sharply to the ocean. A frantic search ensued, and finally the children were found safe and sound.
