Continuing on with our visit at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, this time focusing on the sculpture aspect….
(It should be noted that and I both took pictures, so credit for some of these goes to him.)
Inside the tropical section, there were these awesome planters (maybe a dozen total? there were so many, and they were all different):
If you click to view the bigger image, you can see that he/she has a big frowny face. Quite cute, actually.
As with all sculpture parks, there was sculpture randomly throughout the place. Often, I wished there was a better explanation of the piece or its inspiration or meaning, or even a better title (some were titled “Number 4” which is just not helpful).
There was a pretty awesome piece on the Great Lakes ( worked very hard to get a picture with the entirety of the lakes in it):
It was very accurate, too. I stood right on the “October” spot and my shadow pointed to the right time.
Of course, this pales in comparison to the giant horse, but the pictures for that aren’t uploaded yet, so you’ll just have wait. But trust me, it’s amazing.
Up next? Probably flowers. Also, I have an interesting piece I’m titling “colorstudy” that I hope to have finished by the weekend (just need all the pictures uploaded first).
