Every once in a while I go to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. And while the flowers themselves are pretty much the same year after year, each time I see some new sculpture there. Frankly, I am not a big fan of “modern” art, and constructions out of old toilets or rusty buckets usually give me fits of giggles. But then, for classical art people go to the museum downtown. Flowers are not very picky, they can survive being pretty much near any art.
So, here we go…
What can be more appropriate than sculpture of Fire Ants in Texas. Little vermin causes so much grief, but there’s always someone who wants to take it to a whole new level. The Post Apocalyptic Mutant Metal Fire Ants. Shudder and weep!
For the rest of the art and flowers see the full Wildflower Center album (March 2010).
I wonder if someone will buy the sculptures afterwards, or they will be dismantled, or hid in a warehouse somewhere, to scare future generations of children…
I’m not really an arts person, you can probably tell already.
