For the 8th year, Dogwood Arts' Art in Public Places Knoxville presents its show in and around Krutch Park.  I've been privileged to see several of these sculpture exhibits.  Walking around the little city park is a delight with its sculptures, water features, gardens, and benches.

Calibration by Luke Achterberg won first place in this year's show.

This is really a "bad" photo, but I edited it every so slightly and decided I liked it for its ethereal, dreamlike quality.  It also gives a small idea of what the park looks like.  Calibration seems to be floating. 

PS: These photos were taken one week ago in Knoxville.  See how filled out the trees are?  The leaves are just beginning to appear where I live 270 miles north.

  1. Beautiful sculpture! And yes, trees are leafing out differently in the various areas. some of ours are still --the last of the flowers! pooh! Oh well, summer is on the way . . .

  2. I just love sculpture! We have some cool ones around here. One of these days I'm going to stop my car while I'm driving by to photograph them!

  3. Fun sculpture! We're already daydreaming of going back to TN and that park is now on the wish list.
