Sculpture in the Streets 2009

sculpture streets 2009

Untitled #1 by Amy Podmore squats between Broadway and James.

This year's Sculpture in the Streets collection is up in downtown Albany. This year's group includes 16 pieces by 11 artists. There's a walking tour of the collection that starts at the Hudson River Way Pedestrian Bridge.

B has posted a great photoset that includes many of the pieces -- it's sort of like a virtual walking tour.

The current collection will be on display until next April.

I think AOA needs to do a feature on B and Sebastien - I love their pictures.

I love their pictures too!

I happen to be a fan of both of them as well but shhhhhhhhh... don't tell them.

Agreed!

yay!! i love this picture. :) when i first saw the photo i thought "Alice in Wonderland." then B and I were discussing how we thought the sculpture was very "tim-burtonesque." funny coincidence, since now i see that tim burton is coming out with his own rendition of the classic. ahhh, cant wait!

Oh man, I can't wait either Kim. When I heard TB was remaking Alice in Wonderland I got so excited.. actually, everyone I was with at time really did too. It's going to be ridiculous!

The pictures are awesome as usual. Big fan of this statue and the corral. I wish they'd do a series uptown a little bit more, even by Lark or the park, so I could enjoy them on my walk to work too. Alas, all I get is that Labyrinth on the Plaza...

Thanks for all the kind words folks!

Just a quick update: the sculpture in Untitled #1 seen above is actually gone now. I'm not sure if there was a problem with it filling with rainwater or if it was defaced or what, but hopefully it returns. It grew on me. The teacups in the trees, which I haven't had a chance to shoot yet, are still there though, and they're even more Carrollesque.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
