Things Are Changing Downtown
I guess things can change for the better! CCS is setting a great art example downtown!
The sculpture garden makes the school come alive and is a wonderful connection to the DIA. All of CCS's campus has a new face with fancy landscaping, lighting, sod, and cement paths and pavers. Even the walkway in the middle of the garden had lighted path markers.
This sculpture reminds me of a Koons silver balloon rabbit.
I thought this was the least appealing piece in the bunch. It looked like a poorly constructed children's' playground teeter-totter. Really - the welds seemed sloppy.
These rock chairs used to sit outside the DIA...and now have a better home at CCS. It is nice to see them being used finally!
I apologize for not knowing the artists names of the pieces...I really liked this one but don't know who the artist was. To me it was reminiscent of de Kooning's bronze sculpture.
No it isn't the light that makes this appear pink...it really is a giant pink swirling ladder sculpture. As minimal as this piece is, it looked nice in the foreground of the campus with the Detroit landscape framed in the distance.
The sun is setting on the new sculpture garden. My last thoughts: too bad I graduated two years ago! Oh, well..at least CCS is making a big statement and looks like a sophisticated art school that can now compete with other national schools!
