This week’s Wednesday Wanderings took me downtown Des Moines to the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park. I have been to the sculpture garden many times, but thought it would be great to spend some time focusing on the Nomade.
Nomade (painted steel, 2007) by artist Jaume Plensa
What a beautiful piece of art – right in the middle of our city. Having graduated with a degree in graphic design, I love typography. Sculpture + typography = this is one of my favorite pieces (not to mention how it changes with light!). If you haven’t been to the sculpture garden, you are missing out! I highly recommend it.
What is your favorite sculpture? I’d love to hear from you. And! Did anyone else see this crazy sunset last night?
