Rush Hour


I visited the KC Sculpture Park on the grounds of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art this morning.  I showed you many sculptures a year ago, but I had not made it all the way around the park.  I caught the other half of the sculptures which I will be bringing you this week.  This piece is by George Segal.

The artist definitely succeeded in his portraying his premise perfectly. Love this - great perspective in the image.

Interesting sculpture well photographed. Always liked George Segal's work. Sheldon Gallary on U. of Neb-Lincoln campus had his work back in the 1960s. That piece was plaster and looked very life-like. Look forward to the rest of the week for your posts.

I like his work too but have only seen the plaster works in real life. Nice one!

Hi Regina K!

Congrats on becoming a grandmother; it's rather special. And then, we found out how time flies 'cause we're now great-grandparents twice!

I like this sculpture very much; it's filled with the pathos of living in and amongst strangers...I can see these folks walking down 5th Ave. in NYC and never seeing another person!

You're very welcome, re Weebly. Are you thinking of giving it a try? It's great fun. I have fought to put websites together and not knowing much about html, etc., it's always been a huge pain. This was almost painless!

The idea of isolation despite being in the presence of others is quite profound and well captured here.
