239/365 – Josephine Sculpture Park

**Catching up now that I have photoshop again…

When I was in MN my family and I went to visit the Franconia Sculpture Park. While we were there we talked to one of the ladies who worked there, and she told us about the Josephine Sculpture Park, in Frankfort, Kentucky. We thought it was so ironic that she would mention that to us, not knowing that one member of our group (my brother’s wife) is from Kentucky, and that I went to school there. After she told us about that I decided that I had to go see it, and finally on Sunday (9-5) Elliot and I made it out there. It was a lot smaller scale and less impressive than Frankonia, but still a very cool space (to me at least). I am curious to see if it grows like Franconia has over the years.

Here are a couple of the pictures that I took while there. The first one is technically my “365” but I thought I would share the rest in this post so I don’t have even more as I play catch up.

Another random/ironic thing, this piece had a Wisconsin plate on it.

And, this obviously isn’t a sculpture, but I liked it, a lot.

217/365 – Metal Sculpture

This afternoon my family and I went to the Franconia Sculpture Garden for just a quick little outing. It is such an incredibly cool place, I must say. There are paths going everywhere, with all sorts of sculptures, ranging from massive to more reasonable sizes. They have work by artists from all over the world; from Taiwan to Ireland to many different states here in the US. They also have the coolest amphitheater I have ever seen. It is a huge area with these mounds of grass with big rock slabs jutting out of them for benches. This place also has lots of events going on; concerts every other week during the summer, iron pours, workshops with kids. It is such an impressive and cool place to visit.

I will be uploading a few others from the day later on, but I am exhausted from walking around all day, and my knee is hating me and swelling up to show it, so I need to get some sleep.
