NYC Street Art

Living in NYC, I often find interesting artwork just by walking down the street. The city is like an open air museum! Some consider street art graffiti, but I find it beautiful. Here is some work I found while roaming around Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Calder at OSP

Here's another view of the Calder 'Eagle'.

I just found out an exhibit of Calder jewelry opens at the Norton Museum in West Palm Beach in February -- How amazing would it be to own a piece of Calder jewelry?

The jewelry exhibit makes its way to the Metropolitan Museum in December --

Calder at OSP

Another sculptor I really admire is Alexander Calder (American, 1898-1976). I've stumbled across his work in the most unexpected places -- the wonderous 'Calder's Circus' at the New York Guggenheim, a downtown street exhibit last year, and a mercury fountain (1937) he gifted Joan Miro, housed at the Miro Foundation in Barcelona (the liquid flowing through it is actually mercury).

Here in Seattle I found 'Eagle'.

I wonder where I'll next find his work?

Seattle Sculpture Park

This week is our favorite new Seattle discovery -- the Olympic Sculpture Garden, an extension of the Seattle Art Museum.

Here is Richard Serra's (American, b. 1939) 'Wake'. The scale of these ships majestic, imposing, and yet graceful overall. You can walk in and around the towering pieces, viewing it from every angle. I missed the MOMA retrospective on his work last year, so I was excited to encounter Serra's work here.

You can find out more about the sculpture garden here

Definitely worth a trip if you're in the Seattle area!
