Sculpture is a visual and physical textured art. I see and touch smooth surfaces, ridged waves or curves of a face in sculpture. I think it is a fun three-dimensional art. An eons old art form created from the earliest civilizations still practiced today. Sculpture is classical, modern and contemporary running a gamut of styles that reflects craftsmanship and feelings of the artist who created it.
As Pygmalion, in ancient Greek mythology, created a sculpture that came to life, other artists desire to breathe life into their sculpted creations. Sculpture is an design that can be interpreted with my hands.

I travel to sculpture gardens and parks to see and touch sculpture and feel the textures. At the Sculpture in the Park in Mt. St. Mary Park, in St. Charles, I photograph sculptures while walking a loopy path through the park. For Where’s My Backpack’s Travel theme – Textures, I did Textures of Art.
Art is meant to be enjoyed whatever way we experience it with our senses.
