Crazy rabbit!

The Walker Art Center of contemporary art is one of the first museums I visited when I moved to the Twin Cities two years ago this month. It is a beautiful building which has the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden literally in its back yard, including this sculpture. The large sculpture, size compared to the bench behind, is called Hare on Bell on Portland Stone Piers made from bronze and limestone by Barry Flanagan in 1983.

This photo always makes me smile because of the strange contrast between a playful bunny and a bronze bell. . .what was Flanagan thinking?. . .all the more appropriate for Misty Dawn's Camera Critters this week. Visit more incredible creatures here and maybe share a milk bone in honor of CC's 1/2 year anniversary!

I was researching the color peacock blue when I found this blog. I only saw one blog before and am impressed. I may build my own inspired by nonizamboni! It felt like a home away from home. Have you read The Gift of Asher Lev published about 20 years later?
