Knot & Needle

This sculpture is entitled, Knot & Needle by James Surls. It is one of half a dozen or so similar structures by the same artist installed on the meridian of Park Avenue between 50th and 60th Street.

Notice the post-bloom tulips on the ground -- I posted a photo of them last week. According to a comment left on this blog, there will be coral colored begonias at the end of May, planted by the Fund for Park Avenue.

So do you participate in any non-profit or charity program?

I think the color will add to the sculpture.

Hey, I was at St. Bart's over the weekend and I never even noticed this!! I love outdoor sculpture and art!

Very prickly sculpture, but I actually like it.

Yup. Plenty of opportunities here.

That reminds me. I should take some knitting along on my trip! HA I"m with B2, color might "soften" it a little.

Ouch! I wouldn't want to accidentally walk into that thing. A person could lose an eye, or get their kid speared through.

It look like a giant virus in front of St. Bart... Very nice shot (and sculpture).

Well that's...interesting. Sorry, not a modern art person at all...it's a bit scary actually if you ask me!

In saying that, don't stop posting these photos, even though I don't appreciate modern art, I like to see what's happening with it in big cities!
