Stegosarus



Most of the construction around the Wadsworth Atheneum and the Hartford City Hall is completed, so Alexander Calder's Stegosaurus is once again visible without construction clutter.  Soon the Travelers Tower in the background will be encased in scaffolding.  It is the tower's turn for restoration.

That's pretty neat!

I really like to see Calder's works contrasting to old buildings. We had one here next to Jeronimus Monastery, maybe you saw it as I posted it some time ago.

Not a great fan of this kind of art, but it has obvious merits as urban furniture...

Cool!

I like the Stegosaurus sculpture very much. It's impresses the beauty and strength of the animal with the scary teeth!

Great capture for the day as always and I do like the Stegosaurus. It is good to see restoration taking place to preserve older buildings and our history. Hope your weekend is off to a good start, Jack! Enjoy!

I dunno...this is a family blog...you maybe ought to watch your language. I mean, really! Stegosaurus? What's that all about? It looks absolutely beastly. But cute.

That sculpture calls out for imaginative interpretation. I'm thinking color negative of the crown of the Statue of Liberty.

Wonderful sculpture. At first sight I thought it was more like the sun.

A true Hartford icon. Been there since the 60's.
