It has been a while since I write about Benjamin. You probably wonder how he is "blending" in St. Louis! Can you find Benjamin in the above photo? How about below? (Ernest Trova - Profile Canto VI 1974 - Painted steel).
Bottom sculpture - Abstract Variation No. 3 1976 - Painted steel.
Above and below sculptures are on display at Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis ( Make sure to include a visit to Laumeier when you are in St. Louis, it is a must see. These pieces are among the 40 sculptures donated by the late Ernest Trova, an American artist.
According to the Park's website, "In the mid-1970s, Ernest Trova, banker and arts patron Adam Aronson and County Parks Director Wayne Kennedy conceived the idea of an open-air art museum of contemporary sculpture. Trova donated 40 works to begin the collection in 1975, many of which can be seen within Laumeier Sculpture Park today. Without the foresight of our founders and the generosity of Ernest Trova, St. Louis would be without the unique experience that Laumeier provides."
