shadows and flags

Louise Nevelson Plaza on Maiden Lane is the first public place to be named after an artist in New York. Nevelson was an eccentric, exotic soul whose work can be found all over the city. Most of her sculpture is “found” art: bits of wood and metal painted black and bound together. This park is all hers: Shadows and Flags, (1977) 40 feet high, is made up of 7 sculptures of Cor-ten steel painted black. (description from wallyg’s flickr)

that is a cool sculpture – i’m not usually drawn to sculpture but this one feels very emotive. and i love how it looks like the building is bending in closer to the sculpture.
