Tim Tingle's Tree King

Monday, May 04, 2015

The first time we had ever seen Tim Tingle's carvings was at Orr Park in Montevallo, Alabama:

In March, we visited Aldridge Gardens in Hoover -- which is wonderful and charming and not-too-big and not-too-small...lovely walking trail with lake and art like below plus some Frank Fleming...

The boys have been coming here since they were babies.  We had a regular schedule for each of the five weekdays: Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Birmingham Zoo, Birmingham Museum of Art, Aldridge Gardens, and one day for whatever.  Shug:

Late last month, Ai Weiwei's Iron Tree opened to the public at Meijer Gardens in Michigan.  It's his largest outdoor sculpture yet, 22' tall x 22' wide, 'composed of 99 unique iron pieces cast from individual tree elements from southern China. Held together with oversize stainless steel bolts, Iron Tree appears as a living tree in form, but upon closer examination, the diversity of shapes, exaggeration of reality and awkwardness of the bolts create a much different image.'
