Day at DeCordova

Comet Cuff at the DeCordova

My sister Betsey and I met up at the Decordova Sculpture Park and Museum yesterday, to celebrate her birthday. First we saw the indoor exhibitions--my favorites were the large-scale, rough-hewn cedar sculptures by Ursula von Rydingsvard and a small show of photographs and drawings that give you an idea of what to expect from Andy Goldsworthy's future Snow House project at the DeCordova.

Then we spent lots of time wandering the grounds. Here's a little photo tour of some of the artwork--some manmade, some made by nature.

Thanks for a fun day! I don't remember, what the heck was I doing in that photo? Powering up, maybe.

I don't know how I missed this extraordinary post, Bonnie! I love every photo - you've taken me on an art walk first thing Monday morning. What a sumptuous way to begin the week. I think I need a musical fence in my yard....
Love your sister's cuff - it's perfect with her outfit. She wears it so well. xo t
