“Glass is
a magical material
that's made with human breath.” —Dale Chihuly

About the Artist
Dale Chihuly is primarily lauded for moving blown glass out of the confines of small, precious objects and into the realm of large-scale contemporary sculpture. Born in 1941 in Tacoma, Washington, he was introduced to glass while studying interior design at the University of Washington. In 1968, Chihuly was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to work at the Venini factory in Venice, Italy. In 1971 he co-founded Pilchuck Glass School, in Stanwood, Washington.

The prodigious artist creates complex, multipart sculptures of dramatic beauty and is known for such memorable installation exhibitions as Chihuly Over Venice (1995–96), Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem 2000, and Chihuly at the V&A (2001) at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. His work can be seen in the collections of more than 200 museums worldwide.

Tom Otterness's cute sculptures scattered throughout New York City, most notably in Battery Park City, and 2, 3 subway line 14th Street stops. I love these, they always make me smile whenever I stumble upon them.




all pics from google

I remember this one from the movie "The one and only" (I think that was the title)

We have absolutely horrid cows all over the place in Boston now... and cows have nothing to do with Boston... it's not like San Francisco, like "I left my heart in San Francisco..."....it's not "I left my cow in Boston" ! But the cows are for a good cause

and on the Cape there are some god-awful whale statues all over the place...like this one:

not a fan of the whale there...
but I actually like the cows all over Boston

i think it is fun when you are driving around and they just sort of pop up unexpectedly...
some are cuter than others obviously, but it is a good cause at least

^The cow thing reminded me of the random angels around Los Angeles.

One of my favorite graffitti artists, Nemo. It's just different from the usual more urban gansta streetwork I see. He does some around the world,I've seen one here in Los Angeles, but most are at home in France. Here's a few from his blog.
