Mixed Media

This is the atrium for a gallery next to Theater Works.  An art gallery . . . a sinewy curving sculpture-bench . . . posters for past Theater Works productions . . . and the armed services recruiting offices!

P.J. works in the building and demonstrates that the bench is intended for sitting. 

In yesterday's comments, VP and Lynette filled in the blanks by identifying the art that I didn't.  You are both amazing!

That is a very unusual bench. It makes me think of a dinosaur skeleton.

A very interesting bench. I thought the 'soldier' looked a little out of place in the first shot. Glad you explained. I thought maybe he was part ofthe art.

Very artistic bench. I guess the arts and armed forces do mix. Armed Services Recruiting Station in downtown Phoenix shares the same building as the Phoenix Symphony.

The poster in the background is for the play "The Exonerated." That is a penetrating, thought-provoking play. All Texans, especially, should see it.

Being a benches collector, I find this one very unic and unusual!I'm with Sharon about the idea of a skeletton.Very strange to see a soldier in such a place..

My reaction is the same as Sharon's. Looks like a dinosaur

Wow!

I, too, think the bench looks like a dinosaur! Be careful where you sit! Great shot of a lovely young lady! Another great tour, Jack! Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!

So many contrasting subjects on the top shot. Great composition. The bench is just amazing!

I love the bench. By the way, art gallery and armed officer make interesting combination:)

VP said...

I like P.J. much more than the art-bench...

RedPat said...

I'm with Sharon - looks like dinosaur bones!

That army bloke makes the photo! He's so incredibly out of place somehow. Rather like the French army surveillance everywhere in Paris since 9/11...

Lol@ VP... Wonder if this rather extraordinary bench will be appearing on ABoB...

Dianne said...

Very clever artistic design - but would it be comfortable to sit on ??
I love that art-decor light shade in the top pic Jack - I want one just like that!

It was the soldier I noticed! I wondered if I hadn't caught up on the news yet... army take-over Hartford.

Virginia said...

OK, first the bench. I think PJ is getting eaten alive by the JAWS!!!! Next, I love the composition with the soldier peering in the gallery. Bravo for both J.

That would totally match my decor.

Randy said...

Great looking bench.

Bob Crowe said...

The military recruiters are actually next to the theater's art gallery? Or is that another piece of strange art?

Best Use of Variety in a Daily Photo!

Karl said...

I agree with Sharon and VP ;))

Interesting and beautiful shots Jack!

Lowell said...

I thought that bench was some kind of sculpture...hmmm...I guess it is - a sculpture of a bench. You were fortunate to have it filled up so very nicely by one PJ.
