Via Necee Regis: the Enchanted Highway, featuring "the World's Largest Metal Sculptures produced by artist Gary Greff." I say unto thee: I am just loony tunes enough to consider the possibility to moving out into the middle of nowhere and building something like this one day. I especially like the pheasants.
[From '72 to '88], it was almost impossible for anything to change, because our culture is composed of a public academic and museum sector that changes slowly, and after the fact, in 30 year cycles, and a private gallery and magazine sector that changes rapidly, sometimes overnight. In the last ten years the academics who have been retiring from American universities are Abstract Expressionists and Formalists hired and tenured in the late '60s, just as these practices lost public credibility. They are being replaced with Deconstructionists who are already out of date, and who will be in power for the next 30 years, talking about stuff that is already over now.
