Show & Tell: Better off red

The kids were both in school but Roger and I had Veteran’s Day off. So we had a date in our city.

After lunch (which included acai sangria), we strolled over three of Denver’s bridges toward downtown. On the way, we found this:

Photo by Jeffrey Beall (his is better than mine).

National Velvet is by artist John McEnroe (not the tennis player, I presume). The sculpture was dedicated a year ago today.

Denver does like its primary colors, doesn’t it?

I have sudden urge to prepare kidney beans for dinner.

See what my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell.

  1. Acai Sangria? Hook me up!

    That statue is odd to say the least. Municipal art is always interesting and ecclectic.

  3. What an odd sculpture. Hey, I keep forgetting you live in Denver. I will be there at Christmas! What part do you live in?

    Kids in school? A day off with your husband? Sounds like heaven…

    I know that that time will come quickly enough, so I’m trying to enjoy Oscar at this age, but the thought of having a “date” like that…sigh.

  4. That is a very strange looking sculpture. I’ve been staring at it for several minutes now, unable to pull my eyes away. Odd!

    Hope you had a great day out with your hubby!

  5. OMG…that thing gives the evil Bronco a run for its money in the WTF department. Maybe it looks better IRL?

  11. Wouldn’t it be cool if those were all water balloons and you were at a party with, say, a lot of 8-year old boys….or a few silly drunk adults! …it was the acai sangria!

  12. Hmm… I think I like it. But I couldn’t say why. (Other than I love red.) Really no idea what it’s supposed to be or represent though…

  13. That is some weird art! Colorful…and kidney bean-like.

    I’m glad you and hubby got some time to yourselves.
