When I travel I like to see the art that is on display in public places. It assures me that humans are aware that art in our everyday lives is important.
The images above & below are from my home. I would love to know the story of the fox, and why is he holding an egg? But he stopped me dead in my tracks.
This funky guy is the "River Guardian" in Traverse City. It got both raves & contempt when it was unveiled. I happen to like him. Link is an article about the reaction to this sculpture.
A friend who lives in Denver sent me this. These lovely lithe ladies are magnificent on their own. Then they got dresses for an arts event!
I admit I do like graffiti. She is a bit frightening but so well done.
Brooklyn N.Y. from a trip several years ago.
This couple is so sweet. Portland neighborhood. Discovered them on a leisurely walk to get breakfast one morning. That is what's so great about public art, you just happen upon it.
Alaska. A personified loon.The artist, Rachel Dowdy, also has an installation in the airport.
Image below. These whimsical geese.
Also in Alaska. A High School project using ocean trash to create this rather beautiful salmon.
These last two are as iconic as it gets. Large metal. The St Louis Arch by Eero Saarinen & "Cloud Gate" by Anish Kapoor, better known at the bean in Chicago. Photo ops of these two are limitless.
