Orange Frame


What on earth is that thing framing those palm trees?

It's a sculpture that sits on the grounds of the Phoenix Art Museum.  I couldn't find a plaque for this one so I can't tell you who the artist is but, I do know that it has been in various locations around the museum for many, many years.

I have surprised myself: I like it. And I love the frame!

Nice frame, Sharon, and I like the whole sculpture in the 2nd shot too!

I'm enjoying the juxtaposition of the sculpture in the foreground and the 'structured' building behind. Two worlds in one.

I thought of Alexander Calder when I saw the top shot but it's definitely not his style. Great framing and colours.

Sharon, I can imagine your disppointment when you realized you couldn't take a shot at Poirot's building. I wonder how you found it... :-)

It certainly does stand out!

I do like the way you framed those palm trees Sharon! Orange is not my favorite color, but it sure does make this piece hard to miss.

I'm like JM - I first though of Calder until I saw the 2nd shot. You will have to investigate. ;-)

I'll bet it is by Alexander Lieberman. Google Storm King big red sculpture and you will see a piece very much like this.

Jack said...

Even easier. Google Alexander Lieberman Phoenix.

So nice to see it's still out there.

Perfect framing and perfect color for Arizona. A trademark.

Interesting concept -- slices of a cylinder. It makes a great frame! Good eye, as always. :)

i've seen similar large bright orange pieces in several other cities.
