I don't know about other states, but in the state of Maine 1 percent of all monies spent on any new construction of schools must be dedicated to art. The projects themselves can be in or outside on the grounds of the school and are often connected somehow to the the environment of the area, like lakes, rivers, mountains etc. Here's a closeup look at a piece of art that is part of a larger installation called "Gateway" in a garden nearby the Saco River. I call this simply '6 Balls', although I know it has an official name. This shot in the rain makes them shine.

Yes, the rain really enhances color and texture here. I'd love to see more of the installation if that's possible.ReplyDelete
Yeah, what Bratcat says. There's usually more to stuff than just it's balls.ReplyDelete
There are some peculiar examples of public art around here too.ReplyDelete
I like the concept of money spent for art in schools. And I love learning something new when visiting CDP blogs-- one of the many reasons I participate.ReplyDelete
It looks as if that ball in front is going to drop on your toe at any minute!
Great program for schools. It would be nice to see more of the installation instead of just the balls.ReplyDelete
