Public art in Sacramento that you walk by without noticing on your way to the IMAX theater
My husband says the yellow sculpture has mean feet. I thought he was talking about the Buddha, and I did not see anything mean about the elephant's feet although the trunk was partially buried in the dirt. So we basically engaged in a conversation about two different things all the way to the IMAX theater on Sunday to see Fantastic Beasts.
- •PoseidonBronze Greek God, Poseidon is the brother of Zeus. This sculpture was a gift from Greece in 1972 to the city of Sacramento. It raised a ruckus in 2000 when parents attending a homeschooling convention objected to the nudity, and the city allowed the visitors to dress the sculpture.
- •Homie, Walking the DogsBy GIlbert Magu Lugan, 1940-2011. Acrylic paint over fiber /steel. 2000. This artist was born near Stockton, graduated El Monte HS in 1958 and earned an MFA in Sculpture in 1973 from the University of California at Irvine
- •Genuine Void and Subtle Possession 1998By Jun Tsun-Tsun Lai, a Taiwanese artist born in 1953. It depicts a Buddha without arms resting on top of a small elephant in casting bronze, representative of the ultimate Zen stage of Nirvana. Some people think this piece of public art is too edgy.
