i went to see niki in the garden, the fabulous exhibition of large scale fiberglass, stone and ceramic sculptures by french artist niki de saint phalle, a few days ago and took so many photos that i will have to present this in a few parts. this is a special exhibition that is currently at the garfield park conservatory in chicago until october 31st. you will not believe the kaliedoscope of color, enormous sizes and sheer joy that exudes from each and every one of these pieces. i truly hope the photos do them justice!

    hello G3,

    isn’t this stuff just amazing in person? it makes me want to be a mosaic artist right away, or at least go to italy to see her other works!

    thanks for the comment! 🙂
