Denmark Day

Today we will be welcoming some students from Denmark into our classes and as we are reviewing the artists and styles we learned about in our art history unit I though I'd share some well known art from their home country.  The sculpture below entitled "Boy" is a favorite of mine from artist Ron Mueck and is one of the spotlight works from the ARoS museum in Aarhus.

Here is a piece from which was installed nearby in NY from Danish artist Olafur Eliasson from 2008 where he created 4 New York City Waterfalls (this one under the Brooklyn Bridge) that flowed for a little more than 3 months and were illuminated at night as a public art project.
