Throwback Thursday ~ Still some of my favorite sculpture!

Seeds of Knowledge ~ Organic Public Art

Sometimes my "Throwback Thursday" posts lament some of the buildings, murals, or storefronts that we have lost. Happily, these gorgeous "Seeds of Knowledge" pods are still looking fun and wonderful in front of the Miller Library. Here is the original post from June 23, 2009:

This trio of desert seed pods is part of a wonderful art display at the public library at Golf Links & Harrison. A group of artists living & working at Rancho Linda Vista (an art commune) created these bronze works. The installation (appropriately titled "Seeds of Knowledge") is comprised of 7 pieces ~ 4 large ones and also 3 small ones which are placed to look like they are emerging from the ground.

Here is a pinecone, a mescal bean (on its side) and a mesquite desert poppy ~ all in heroic proportions! The poppy stem is 8' tall! Fun!

This project was made possible, in part, by TPAC, Tucson Pima Arts Council.
