Zim Sculpt

By , August 3, 2019 3:15 pm

Truly beautiful works of art, sculptures by Zimbabwean artists at Edwards Gardens. Each one is perfectly placed in just the right location in the extensive gardens. There are a few other photos in my July post. I’ve been twice now and would love to go back at dusk.

This is not the first time I’ve seen Zimbabwean sculpture. Near our cottage is ZimArt: Rice Lake Gallery, another fantastic place to see outdoor art.

I love the variety of subjects: human, animal and geometric.

Even a nice sunny day at the cottage did not reveal very much colour.

Together

As many of the readers of this blog know, Bailey is incredibly shy. A few days ago he was lying on a pile of blankets in the hall when Fletch came right up to him and give him a little kiss. They then sat together for a few minutes, just long enough for me to grab the camera. Soon after, Bailey ran away, apparently in terror.

Random NY Architecture

On our first day in New York, temperature just above zero, we walked from 53rd St. to 4th St. Though our feet were tired we took in a lot of interesting architecture.

Relatives and relativity at the American Museum of Natural History

First time at the American Museum of Natural History! We met many relatives, from Lucy to cousin Neanderthal to butterflies! At the Hayden Planetarium, a glass cube with a giant sphere inside, we could visualize the relative size of everything in the universe. Okay, not everything.

The Transit Museum

On a brutally cold and windy day we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge to the Transit Museum. To our surprise it was located in an unused subway station. Apart from the informative displays we enjoyed the kid-friendly activities. Photos courtesy of Val Dodge.

Of course photos don’t do great art justice.

The Highline

Today in New York, in spring-like weather, we wandered the Highline, a park built on an elevated rail line. These photos show what you see on either side of the unique park.

This guy (maybe she’s a girl) lives in our pond and is very still while being photographed.
