Look Up at Sheep in Chinatown Park on the Greenway in Boston

Why Go Soon? Ten sculpted sheep by Brooklyn-based artist Kyu Seok Oh give us ten new reasons to look up from a park path on the Greenway. Since the second week in June, the hand-made paper sheep have stood on red metal perches just beyond reach in Chinatown Park, at the end along Essex Street, two blocks southwest […]

Alchemist in Cambridge and Humming in Lincoln, Huge Human Forms by Jaume Plensa

Humming by Jaume Plensa at the deCordova Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA and his Alchemist on MIT’s campus in Cambridge are the only two sculptures by Plensa that I have seen in person.

Yet some changes still startle me. For instance, in late September  at the top of the steps near the museum entrance a huge crane deposited […]

Red, Yellow and Blue Installation by Orly Genger at deCordova

How did artist Orly Genger manage to  install more than a million feet of hand-crocheted lobster fishing rope throughout the grounds of deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts?  What inspired the creation of this grand-scale work of art?   The deCordova website offers answers to these questions, along with dramatic photos of each of the […]
