Nature and art came together today – with a glorious early-spring afternoon at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
Denver is on the map for our vibrant and growing art scene, our wonderous natural landscape and our unbeatable weather. Today was the perfect convergence of all three.
Henry Moore sought inspiration for his sculpture from the natural landscape, and what better place to exhibit 20 Moore sculptures than at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The pieces are very organic, and while the themes are human, the works feel like they could be natural rock formations or downed trees. The play of light and landscape create a humbling feeling next to these massive pieces.
The Henry Moore exhibit will be at the Gardens until January 2011, offering visitors the chance to see the sculpture during varied seasons and at different times of the day. We plan to visit often, and joined as members so we can drop by for a few minutes or hours any time we feel the desire for sculpture and landscape.
Oh – and the crocus are up too!
Today was an unbeatable Denver day – capped off with a walk around the lake at Washington Park with Duke. Spring is literally in the air!
