Relook at Dancing at Bougival Sculpture

A reblog from June 12, 2014

Here is the delight of the day- (Stef!) 

A monumental sculpture by J Seward Johnson has been at PPG Place for “about four days”, the guard said.

But don’t worry.  The giant dancers will be in place until October.

Dancing at Bougival (painted in 1883 by Pierre A. Renoir ) is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Note: August 2020. This post inspired after seeing Pittsburgh Artist Jack Puglisi ‘s Pointillist work “The Dance” from his MASTERWORKS series – remembered I had photographed this sculpture in 2014.

Model Trains, Vintage Streetcar Were the Favorites

Earlier this week- Heinz History Center and Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden.

Laura and Charlie and I enjoyed visiting a couple of Pittsburgh’s highlights while James attended a conference.

We are fortunate there is so much to do in the city.

While Stopped on West End Bridge

There’s a stop light at the end of the bridge. When it was red, this was my vantage point of the city. Then I was joined by the silver car in the left lane.
