Four Seasons

Four Seasons in front of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Kansas, MO
July 2015
Last summer, Marilyn, Brenda, and I visited The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The featured outdoor sculptures were the Four Seasons, created by Philip Haas, displayed in front of the museum building.  I didn't care for the "summer" sculpture, so I didn't take a photo of it.

The sculptures were 15 feet tall, and three-dimensional.

Spring
Fall
Winter
The artist had quite an imagination: I love the whiskers on Winter.

  1. Winter is kind of scary looking, which is appropriate for the season, in my opinion.

  2. Very very cool. I like Spring the best. Why the badmitton birdie? SHuttlecock?

  3. I think Fall is my favorite of those three, but the plain old shuttlecock is my favorite over all! Great photos!

  4. I don't know about summer, but spring is a little strange. I think I'm in love with winter though.

  6. I've seen large sculptures of everyday items but never large sculptures of faces looking like they are made of fruits and veggies. I remember the library I worked in had a whole book about this type of art. Can't remember the artist but it was fascinating.

  7. I love that museum, though I haven't been since the renovations a couple years ago. These sculptures are interesting.
