Art Week: Day 4

[NOTE: Garden grounds currently contain the beautiful sculptures of Manolo Valdés (see Installation)].


The largest outdoor exhibition of Henry Moore's sculpture ever presented in America is on display right outside my office.  Twenty colossal pieces scattered throughout 250 gorgeous acres.  Don't guess there's any chance that the Henry Moore Foundation would forget to pick these up when the exhibit closes on November 2...

Hill Arches, 1973


Knife Edge Two Piece, 1962-1965


Goslar Warrior, 1973-1974



The trucks and cranes and workers and cables are all here - in the drizzling rain - to start setting up the Manolo Valdés sculptures (see Recent Arrivals) at NYBG. This is going to be great. [NOTE: The image above greeted me as I walked to my office this morning].


Recent Arrivals

Seven towering sculptures by Manolo Valdés were recently deposited in the Watson parking lot at The New York Botanical Garden. Part of a show that opens on September 22. The pieces were designed in the artist's studio in Manhattan, made in a Madrid foundry, shipped to Baltimore, and then carried by truck to the Bronx. Nice to have sculpture back in the Garden (see Moore at the Garden), and I am very much looking forward to spending some time with these pieces.
