  2. They really are eye shadows! You find the most unusual things to post.

  3. I hadn't considered the eyes in the first picture, more like lemon shaped benches. Then I scrolled down...

    Eyes at a museum seem so appropriate. The art can readily be examined by the eye, and as a gateway to a house of art, it makes perfect sense!

    I have never seen Williams, and the architecture seems classic, at a place of classical learning...

  4. How fun are they...don't you wonder sometimes just what goes on in the mind of an artist???

  5. When I went over to Hey Harriet to Mr. Linky, I spotted you, just a few blogs ahead of me. Like minds.
    The 'eyes' have it!

    Peace

  7. Woo! Those eye sculptures are almost haunting! Especially as there are so many spread around! And their shadows add a sense of mystery to them! Quite dramatic!

  9. They're both whimsical and most definitely the opposite.. a profound and beautifully rendered mystery.

  12. Imagine...being able to sit in an eye!
    and to see it's cast shadow at the same time!
