A few more sculptures from the NCMA park~
Collapse I by South African artist Ledelle Moe. This sculpture makes me want to lay down in the grass and take a nap. :)
And then deep in the woods, an untitled work by the same artist. It's meant to represent a human figure rolled up in a ball, but the boys used it as as opportunity to act out the scene when Indiana Jones escapes from the huge rolling boulder. Interactive art!
The Lowes Park Pavilion, 2007, by Mike Cindric and Vincent Petrarca. From the museum website:
The perforated, metallic skin of the pavilion, inspired by the transparent quality of a dragonfly’s wings, changes with the time of day and the quality of light—reflecting its natural surroundings and taking on the colors of the trees, grass, and sky—or completely disappearing into a shimmering pattern of light and shadow.
Whisper Bench by Jim Gallucci. This one is fun too:
"Located on either side of a trail, the two sections of Whisper Bench are linked by a hidden sound pipe that allows visitors to whisper messages back and forth while sitting on opposite sides of the path."
It's SO much fun taking the boys to this museum. More to come...
