I sometimes take for granted how incredible these fire box conversions are. I haven’t seen this one in years. It’s especially awesome how they incorporate both sides into the sculpture. It’s also pretty brilliant how they highlight different periods of history.
Description, artist and dedication after the jump. (more…)
Doi Moi will open this summer. Think the sculpture will light up?

I was gonna ask about sequestration this week but to be honest I’m just sick of sequestration. Yesterday I posted one of my favorite lion sculptures and others voted for their favorites. So to get as far away from sequestration as possible – I wanna talk outdoor art today. It can be either from a private residence or from a museum or government owned. For non private, I love the Kahlil Gibran memorial garden sculptures and poems. From a private home I love this origami crane from Dupont. What’s your favorite piece of outdoor art?
