A is for Art Festival


Today the City of Columbus was having is annual art festival at the Columbus College of Art and Design. I drug the girls along with me for the ride. (Who knew everything was going to be cash only.... with no ATM in site!?!)
This is a monster of a sculpture (probably over 4-5 stories tall) is the school's trademark installation piece. There was a lot of fun artsy things to take pictures of, but I thought this sculpture was the epitome of "ART"
(P.S. My husband who has a Masters of Fine Art emphasis in painting and drawing, but also does plenty of sculptures- HATES, HATES, HATES this sculpture... I think it's pretty funny that he has such strong feelings on this piece~ haha.)

I love the red white & blue! Funny that Chip hates this so much; I think it's so neat!

Good job framing it too!

I love your framing on this- and your creativity with this! Love the blue sky and clouds.

Candace said...

Breezi, I LOVE this!!! I love how the whole frame is filled with the word and the bright blue sky against the stark red... metal? Is it metal? Great job!

Breezi said...

It is bright red metal. The sun was setting, and when I took the picture I was basically being blinded by the sun behind the sculpture.
You can also see another picture of the sculpture here:

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL! Simple, yet says something--literally! :) I LOVE your take on the letter A. I love how you framed it and everything.

it does look rather great and it looks like a great photography shot now not just some "art" off the street.

Perfect for this challange!

Brittney said...

SO COOL!!! Perfect for the challenge! It looks almost like a drawing. It caught our (Dave is here with me) eyes for sure! Go Breezi!

Jenn Kamp said...

I also think this is great. It almost looks computer generated. You did a fantastic job!

Shelby said...

I think its cool that the letters are all in the frame, with only the sky in the back....

I like it. I really like how it looks like it's kind-of floating, since we can't see the base of it.
