Sculpture in Laramie, Wyoming - Can You Find It? (#16)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Live in Laramie Real Estate, Laramie, Wyoming WY #12296

Laramie, Wyoming. We have some culture, really - we do!  The challenge of this just for fun series . . .

Can You Find It ?!

If you haven't been to - or live in - Laramie, Wyoming,  it won't be easy to do the  "Can You Find It?"  part of this challenge.  However,  I  hope  that  far  away  visitors  can  still  enjoy   the  pictures!         

                            Socrates in Bronze

This one is so odd  the way the figure of "Socrates" leans back - it makes it seem unbalanced.  Though its location is very apt - right in front of the entrance to the College of Law.

(This series was inspired by Sculpture, A Wyoming Invitational.  www.uwartmuseum.blogspot.com

Hi Brenda - Another very nice picture.  Wonder if Socrates is curious just how he got there and is contemplating the philosophical meaning of his existence in that space.  Could be he is leaning back to try and see some landmarks to locate himself.  Thanks for the blog.

Brenda,  That is a very interesting sculpture. And it does seem to fit perfectly in front of the College of Law.

I love public art simply because a lot of it makes you think. Reminds me that I need to do a similar series on the public art on the University of California San Diego campus.

Good idea, Russel!  I am always interested in seeing the opportunities you have in more populated areas of the country!

Hi Joyce,  It definately has personality doesn't it?  Funny how I always pictured Socrates as more majestic and other worldly....
