Our World Tuesday: NCMA Park

Bill and I went on a walk at the North Carolina Museum of Art Park on Sunday.

A mild winter and very wet spring has left the park green.
The pond was quite full and suitable for reflections.
Below is a work called the Conversationalist by Chakaia Booker.
In the next shot you can see Bill patiently waiting for me to snap a shot of Lowe's Pavilion by Mike Cindric and and Vincent Petrarca.
The central object in the next shot is Wind Machine by Vollis Simpson. The smokestack is left from the old Youth Prison which isn't there anymore.
After a rainy evening it was pleasant on Sunday morning.
The work below is called Collapse I by Ledelle Moe.
Next is another shot of the Wind Machine.
The Museum Amphitheater has concerts and movies.
I like the butterfly backdrop.
I took the next shot from behind the stage facing the seating.
One more shot of the wind machine, this time shooting from below the hill so you don't see the pole it sits on.
The next shot is on the opposite side of the pond from where I shot it in the earlier photos.
I'll end when we were back at the parking lot ready to leave.

What fantastic displays on the grounds of this museum! I like the butterflies too … seem so appropriate for people on stage performing and stretching their wings. Some of the other more modern sculptures would make great props for a science fiction movie. :)

I would love visit this beautiful place and take pictures all day long! Beautiful sculptures and I love the butterfly mural!

What lovely grounds, I'd be reluctant to leave the park to see what treasures lay inside.

I LOVED this Sunday walk. I don't think I would want to go inside (at least on a beautiful day like this one)....Everything you photographed was great, but I could not stop looking and thinking about "Collapse".

Great tour and that wind machine is really something. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Thanks for the tour of this wonderful park. Such interesting sculptures. That wind machine looks like it is ready to take off for parts unknown.
