Modern Sculpture Finds A Natural Setting On East And West Coasts

One focuses on the very qualities found in nature: form, texture, light and shadow. A few photos I took there:





Touring the UCLA campus, I came upon the 3.4-acre Murphy Sculpture Garden. Here are several shots I took of outstanding work from the past century:

Glad to see that my alma mater inspired a blog. Nice pix. Lucky some were stills.
