Gyre

Another sculpture I love in the NC Museum of Art park, this one is Gyre by artist Thomas Sayre. This thing is so monumentally huge and is visible from so many different parts of the park, and it changes shape depending on where you are. There are spotlights shining on it at night and it looks very cool; next time I'm over there for a concert, I'll get a photo of that.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, this sculpture is very cool and it looks even more cool where it is positioned on that grassy hillside. I'm sure the artist intended it to be that way. I like how you captured the different angles of the sculpture which gives a cool effect. Your nephews seems to enjoy this sculpture artwork too. I bet it looks beautiful at night and I am looking forward to looking at the photos you take of them on your next concert visit.

Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great day today.

LB:

Wow, that's really cool!

Very creative idea and placement - made of steel?

Thanks everyone.

M, here's what the brochure says:

Made of concrete, colored with iron oxide, reinforced with steel, and mottled with pebble residue from earth casting.

Wow! Very cool sculpture! It must have been fun for your nephews to see this.
