I recently visited the new Sigal Museum in Easton and was surprised to find a temporary gallery devoted to coal mining related works of art by "Wyso." Photos were not permitted, but a glimpse of his work is online at;

Details about the show are here:

I thought the most interesting piece was a sculpture of a miner with a mule, bucking like a bull in a rodeo!
