Public Art – A Good Match
Does public art match it’s environs? Sometimes. Here’s a few of my favorites for this week’s photo challenge A Good Match.
I love the placement of one of the Hearts in San Francisco at Fort Point overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.
The entire wall is covered in similar sculptures made from common hardware items such as drills, safety vests, hammers, those orange Home Depot buckets and, shown here, office chairs. The match is that this Denver municipal building houses the Public Works Department. The atrium is filled with the Tools used to build the city.
A bit more subtle is this work with a rotating mirror within that reflects back the cylindrical shapes that to me evoke moving blood cells. It is located outside the microbiology building at the University of Minnesota. The artist intended it to explore microbes.
I think it’s a good match! What about you?
