Her Secret is Patience
A draw for Phoenix as the destination for this trip was that I wanted to see a public sculpture by the artist Janet Echelman. You might remember her mentioned on my blog before as I saw a piece if hers in Amsterdam on my last night there.
This piece is a permanent installation since 2009 in a downtown civic park in Phoenix. We went early in the day to see it and returned again that same night to see it lit up. I noticed it wasn't as vibrant/bright as the piece I saw in Amsterdam, but after I read more about it I understand that the lighting changes based on the seasons. We spent a lot of time in the park talking about it. They are such interesting sculptures that I wonder when people come across them what they think- its so strange and beautiful just floating there.
