Reflections on the Delaware Art Museum

Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate Delaware RS-0010115

GiantIn my Mother's Day story on ROCKS, I mentioned the Delaware Art Museum's Copeland Sculpture Garden. Today I would like to show you some of the works of art found there. One of the most popular pieces is Tom Otterness' Crying Giant, a 13' bronze construction. My favorite viewing point for this work is where it is reflected in the windows of the museum's Education Wing.


Another interesting piece is Protecting the Future, by Domenico Mortellito, a limestone sculpture which looks sort of Pre-Columbian to me.


And speaking of stoneIrish pieces, there is also Irish Pastoral VII by William Freeland, which looks like it is keeping a lot of stones in check.  Maybe they are not really stones, but potatoes? That was a dream dashed by the potato blight of 1845. Not sure. 


TiresAnd for something completely different, there is Chakaia Booker's One Way 2008,  made of recycled tires and stainless steel. Look closely and they look like studded tires. 



You can find them all here in rock signthe Copeland Sculpture Garden in Wilmington, Delaware.
