Herb Alpert’s Spirit Totem Monuments at Dante Park, Lincoln Center

Herb Alpert Spirit Totems

Hey, remember back in January when I met music industry legend Herb Alpert? That was cool. In addition to his exhibit at ACA Galleries, Herb also has this public installation of three of his monumental, 16-foot Bronze Spirit Totem Statues installed at Dante Park, a triangular lot at the intersection of Broadway, Amsterdam and 65th Street, just in front of Lincoln Center.

Hers a close up on one of the sculptures which I managed to crop most of the foot traffic out of.

Many passersby stopped to admire, pose with and photograph the sculptures, but I’d bet that most of them had no idea that Alpert is the talented artist behind this work, because the above identifying sign is mounted very high up on a pole, not really in the sight lines of a person just walking by on the street. Geoffrey and I just happened to recognize them as we walked to the 1 Train after checking out the Beatles Exhibit, because they looked just like the sculptures that we saw at his ACA Galleries exhibit earlier in the year.

The sculptures will be on display until April 15th, 2014.

Pink Thing of the Day: Pink Vespa

Artist Jeanne Wilkinson sent me this photo of a very cool Pink Vespa motor scooter taken by her in Amsterdam. Jeanne and her husband Frank (who is also an artist) are currently vacationing in Europe and blogging about it here, if you’d like to see more of Jeanne’s beautiful photos and read about their adventures! Thanks Jeanne!
