Billy Tripp is the creator of The Mindfield, the largest outdoor sculpture in Tennessee.
The Mindfield is located in the town of Brownsville and contains many individual artworks reaching heights over 125 feet. One of the latest additions, a huge, spherical water tower salvaged from a defunct factory in Kentucky, was transported and reconstructed single-handedly by the artist. The Mindfield continues to grow and evolve, most recently with the inclusion of several silhouettes depicting Billy’s birth and death, and his “Mindfield Interpreter”. Also, a 17 ft. canoe, used by author William Least Heat-Moon in his cross-country navigation of the United States inland waterways (River-Horse, 2001), was added to the structure in 2011.
