Overhead

Inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo. The prompt: Overhead

 

During a recent visit to the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester, NH, I noticed this steel sculpture next to the front entrance.

Its moving parts caught my attention in the slight breeze…

Sculpture

Inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo. The prompt:  Sculpture

 

During my visit to the Shelburne Museum (in Shelburne, Vermont) last month, I was blown away by the circus exhibit. Or rather…the entire building full of circus exhibits.

Upon entering the Circus Building, a large glassed-in area displays an entire three-ring circus of tiny hand carved wooden sculptures. The photographs below give just a hint at the genius and beauty of this vast work of art. I highly recommend viewing it in person.

The official description:

The Kirk Brothers Circus is a miniature three-ring circus, complete with an audience, comprised of more than 3,500 pieces. Edgar Kirk fashioned the figures over a period of forty years using only a treadle jigsaw and penknife.

“Origins”  by Mark di Suvero

 

This majestic sculpture, created by Mark di Suvero, greets visitors at the entrance to the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH.

This view – from the ground looking up – captures just a portion of its 36 foot height…

On a perfect summer day.
