Public Art & Private Art

I found this sculpture in a very small public space in old town Scottsdale one weekend.  I tried to find something to indicate the artist but none was found.  It's located near a lot of galleries and especially one that has other sculptures outside it's doors.


























This sculpture of a saguaro cactus is located on the gallery property.  I didn't see a sculptor's name on this one either and it has been bolted to the ground so I think it's there to stay.

Both of these sculpture add to the artistic atmosphere of this Scottsdale area.

The scrap metal one is funky.

I thought that was a REAL cactus!

The top one has an Aztec feeling to it, I think. It is cold here in England and visiting your blog has warmed me up!

I probably wouldn't have recognized the second one as a sculpture, if you hadn't said anything!

That first sculpture made me laugh! The 2nd one looks very real. Nice!

Kathy said...

I really like both of these.

The first is funny, but the natural one is nicer...

The second sculpture certainly does look like the real thing.

I'd really have liked to know what the first one is. The second one is a hoot (sorry but it made me laugh!!)

I could have that 2nd one here sitting out in the cold - love it!

Public art. Nothing like it.

I like both and I also thought that the second was a real cactus!

I like them both Sharon, at first glance the cactus looks quite real, or is that just moi :)

Kate said...

Different kinds of sculptures, but both are worthy images for your camera.
