que serra serra.
i've always been a fan of richard serra...since the first time i was introduced by an art-loving and adventurous friend to some of his work in a cavernous basementlike gallery at the dia museum in beacon. i so rarely venture on something other than the new haven line, but it was a truly memorable and easy daytrip from manhattan on board metro north.
the olympic sculpture park is part of the seattle art museum and has been a beautiful addition to the city in an otherwise not-so-pretty and unused parcel of waterfront property. they've really spiffed up the place!
walking between the paths made by these wavy massive pieces of steel makes you feel small, and maybe even held captive, but in a good way.
