DECEMBER 4, 2016 - 339/366 THIS GIANT BRONZE BUNNY, DECORATED FOR THE HOLIDAYS
If you’ve ever biked, run, or driven on Minnehaha Parkway near Portland Avenue, you probably saw this giant sculpture by Wisconsin sculpture, Jeff Barber.
I actually don’t love the sculpture as much as I love seeing how kids react to it. Their eyes get big, and they clamber up on top to strike a pose, waiting for mom or dad to get their phone out. It’s the kind of bunny that everyone wants to have their photo with.
Entitled “Cottontail on the Trail,” the sculpture is a gateway to three Minneapolis neighborhoods: Hale, Page, and Diamond Lake.
Anna Sew Hoy: Suppose and a Pair of Jeans / Available at www.draw-down.com / Designed by Mark Owens & Tanya Rubbak. The first book to consider the work of Los Angeles-based artist Anna Sew Hoy, whose prolific practice originates in sculpture and reaches into craft, performance, and ceramics. Organized into groupings that emphasize the interrelation of form, process, function, and influence, this generously-illustrated volume is punctuated by texts and “manifestos” responding to Sew Hoy’s work by fellow artists, writers, art historians, curators, and collaborators including Math Bass, Julia Bryan-Wilson, Trinie Dalton, Jennifer Doyle, Eve Fowler, Rita Gonzalez, Alice Könitz, Jenni Sorkin, and A.L. Steiner. Edited by Alex Klein & Mark Owens #graphicdesign #typography #AnnaSewHoy #sculpture #performance #form #process
