Art Imitates Life for Ocean Springs Artist

Ocean Springs sculptor Trailer McQuilken travels all over the southeastern United States looking for exotic plants and flowers. McQuilken doesn't want to plant and grow them, he preserves them in copper.

The artist's sculptures are remarkably life like.

"One time a bee landed on one of my copper flowers" says McQuilken.

His one of a kind creations are currently on display at the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center on Government Street in Ocean Springs.
