There is a delightful piece of public sculpture down from the Columbus Museum of Art at the corner of Washington Avenue and Gay Street in Columbus, Ohio. Its message is especially clear on a cloudless day with a crystal blue sky - like yesterday. [NOTE: The red steel sculpture was created by Doris Shlayn for the Columbus College of Art and Design].

Inside the museum is an incredible assortment of other wonderful pieces, many from some of my favorite artists. For example:

Cardbird IV (1971), Robert Rauschenberg, color offset photolithograph on cardboard, and


Imola (1981), Frank Stella, paint on corrugated aluminum. [NOTE: I have always tried to follow Stella's maxim in my own work: "You can't use too much glitter"].
