A Few More Views

Again, I walked around this sculpture to show various angles of the squiggle part. It’s smaller than some of the other works. Still it’s nice addition to an otherwise dull median.


Moving west on Veterans from the Clearview Parkway intersection is another sculpture on the median called, “Trace.” It was created by artist Alexander Liberman in 1967. Painted bright orange, the piece pops against the blue sky at the Club Drive intersection.

A Few More Anlges

Naturally I walked around the piece to photograph different angles. It’s the best way to appreciate 3-D works. Walking back to my car I was reminded how busy this intersection gets as cars whizzed by me.

Guitar with Jazz Aura

Last year I photographed a sculpture of toucans at the intersection of Clearview Parkway and Veterans Boulevard in Metairie, LA. Since then artist Abby Cantrell’s “Guitar with Jazz Aura” has been added to the median on the other side of Clearview Parkway. Its red color makes it stand out against the green plants near it.

Steve Kline Sculpture

Recently I spotted a Steve Kline metal sculpture on Judge Perez in Chalmette. The title is "The Wind Blew, the Water Surged, the Willpower Emerged." A plaque states that the sculpture is dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. This area of Louisiana flooded during and after the storm.

Night Shots from the Open Art Show Reception

It didn’t take long to get dark. I took some night shots before the awards were given out. Folks crowded in for that part of the evening.

West Bank Art Guild Open Art Show

The West Bank Art Guild held a reception for its Open Art Show on the evening of November 6th. It had been a while since the guild had one. Anyway, members and guests feasted before the awards were given out.
