Park art balloons

Posted By on Fri, Jun 10, 2011 at 12:03 PM


New sculpture in the Vogel-Schwartz sculpture garden, in Riverfront Park behind the Peabody Hotel, was celebrated yesterday afternoon with ice cold water and wine. Balloons were tied to the new pieces, one donated and the rest purchased at last year's Sculpture at the River Market show. Names of the artists weren't attached yet, so I can't identify the artist of the deer pictured above, but City Director Dean "Riverfront Park" Kumpuris said it was his favorite.

Here's a link to other snaps I took yesterday of some of the new work and one purchased earlier, the large yellow sculpture by Kathleen Caricof, a $60,000 commission paid for with city and private funds. Two of the pieces are by Michael Warrick, sculpture instructor at UALR.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
