I created this collage so that I could show you some of the sculptures that decorate the grounds and the lobby of the Viad Tower. In the upper left corner is “Museum Guard” by Gary Mirabelle, a sculpture that is so life-like that people approach “him” all the time looking for directions. Below the guard is “Best Seller” by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. This sculpture actually fooled me the first time I visited the park area. I was viewing this piece from the back and I kept wondering why someone would stop here to take an afternoon nap.
In the center top is “Puddle Jumpers” a sculpture by Glenna Goodacre that I mentioned yesterday. Below the kids is “Nice to See You” by J. Seward Johnson, Jr., the window washer who has been working on this same spot on the window for quite a while now.
On the top right is “Catching Up” also by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. This sculpture is located in the building lobby where he stands reading his newspaper. The last photo on the bottom right is “Flora” by Jo Hess, a sculpture located in a flower bed near the entrance to the building. Flora is forever contemplating the flowers in her garden.
