Yesterday, in opposition to Jim's advice, I decided to brave the heat and humidity and take the "sculpture walk" yesterday afternoon. I mentioned the Ivoryton Theater as a community treasure, and it is. Ivoryton also has Bennies, a wonderful Organic Market; bike trails, nice restaurants, good schools, beauty, history and a great arts community-the quality of life ammenities we think about when we choose were to live.
The bike trail follows the main route through town where we've been admiring the roadside sculpture collection as we drive by. I decided to park the Bronco and walk it rather than bike since the heat was so oppressive.
This piece is made from welded reinforcing rods and stands about three feet tall. It casts fascinating shadows, depending on the time of day.
My favorite was this metal piece, intriguing because as you pass it, you can never quite decide if it looks more like a fish, or a face? It changes as you move. Quite the accomplishment for the artist to trick the eye.
