They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose art is that way, too. So it was with an open mind that I accompanied our children on a field trip to Laramie's latest installment of Sculpture, A Wyoming Invitational. (www.uwartmuseum.blogspot.com ) in June of 2008.
Seriously?! Was this a practical joke? The artist, a man from New York state, took this work quite seriously. He seemed annoyed by the children who didn't get the deeper meaning of it and could only see it as a giant earth worm. Me, all I can say is "Bless their little hearts" as NOT one of them made a single reference as to what else this looks like!
I think the real title of this was "Over and Under". Thankfully, there was a plan to take it down late the following summer and they did. I always wondered what the people driving by on the interstate must have thought if they noticed it!
