Art in Public Places
Have you ever noticed how much art there is in public places? I don't mean billboards or architecture or graffiti (though those are all "art" in their own right), but I mean art that exists for its own sake. Art which doesn't try to sell you anything, shelter you, or is not a political message. I mostly notice sculptures, but there are other "installations" too.
I'm drawn to these pieces of art like a moth to a flame. I find them amusing, fun, and inspiring. I'm hoping that was what the artists were shooting for! These are pieces of art that I pass fairly frequently and they continue to delight and enchant me.
Have you seen any of them?

I always appreciate light travelers!
Bookworms on 2nd Ave, Midtown Manhattan
I love a good book!
This landscape art at the Niner winery in Paso Robles, CA
Sometimes "art" is planting a heart in the middle of a vineyard.
In the NYC Subway, 42nd St
Mr. Moneybags should know better than to take the A train.
At the Atlanta Botanical Gardens
This is a fun face!
Also from the Botanical Gardens
Mr. Blue Bird on my shoulder...

Mr. Gila Monster under my feet.
So... here's a plug for slowing down and taking in some of the great works of art that are so easy to walk on by!
What are your favorite installations?
