Sculpture Saturday – Artsy Stuff from the Florida Keys

Hi Readers,

 Joining in with Sculpture Saturday 

SCULPTURE: Three-dimensional art made by one of four basic processes: carving, modeling, casting, or constructing (Tate, 2020).


Down in one of the Florida Keys – they have this bike sculpture:

 This image reminds me of a photo that could stand alone for a “wordless Wednesday” – because so many fun details – the roof ,ones countered by the wavy bike rack lines – the shiny Range Roger and old recycled bikes – and then the green building and bike colors – the sun beaming down and that single tree in center reminding me of “feeling free, mature, and alive.” 


And, look, we have a seat – for “pull up a seat” (how convenient is this… ha) 
Like this “Industrial Art”

    1. Hi Chris – thanks for the comment and I forgot about your cyclist side – I think of you as an educator, photographer, and lately – “advocate for wellness with technology” haha

  1. That’s a wheely cool bike sculpture. I’m sure the spokesperson loves pedalling the story to anyone who’ll listen.


    1. hahah – as usual – love your punny take on words!
      and here is one cycle joke n reply:

      Did you hear about the guy who punched a car for straying into a cycle lane?

      He was a bit of a cycle-path“

      okay – a little humor splash and wishing you a good week ahead

    1. Hi Linda – it is also a great advertising item to pull people into the business – and some bikes are so old I doubt folks would steal them — but as we have noted before – sometimes we just never know – eh?🚲🚲🚲🚲

      1. Very true Yvette – when Tyree Guyton, a local artist who lived in Detroit, decorated a group of houses on one block with very oddball items hanging from the houses and calling them names (like The Doll Houses) or decorating other objects in the neighborhood, people were in two camps: one liked the neighborhood for the aesthetic value; others wanted the artwork gone. I never saw it in person, just photographs but I really didn’t care for it but that’s me. The latter camp got their wish as arsonists went through and burned down much of the neighborhood a few years ago and Guyton finally dismantled most of the project. I’ll send you this long story from the New York Times about him and some photos of his work and my apologies in advance if I sent it to you before – I remember searching for the history of Guyton for another blogger and it might have been you.
