Continuing my August of more pictures, fewer words, here’s some more visuals that make me smile:
David Fitcher, a favorite local muralist of ours, has been engaging kids in this public art project, one 15-foot section at a time, for years and years. It’s a glorious homage to the Mystic River ecosystem. I honestly love getting stuck in traffic on this stretch of roadway, so that I can get a good look at the latest additions.
Renzo Piano’s addition to and renovation of the Fogg Art Museum, in progress. In addition to being a sucker for blue sky days, I love the juxtaposition of high tech architecture and low tech power lines.
Art? or architecture? This basket-y balsa wood structure sat outside the GSD for a few days, in the space that we used for after-dinner backyard soccer and frisbee and wiffleball adventures, back in the day.
Believe it or not, this seascape lives just around the corner from our house. A little rock garden, adorned with driftwood sailboats and pine cone birdhouses. It’s right across the street from the public high school, but it doesn’t get messed with. That scallop shell has been there for years. Makes me happy every time I walk by.
