Attachment 71295

I paid little attention to this sculpture when it was installed a few miles from me on the University of Michigan campus in downtown Ann Arbor to celebrate the university's bicentennial in 2017, but it is featured in the September 2020 edition of a local news/article publication called the Ann Arbor Observer, and some of the images were very striking. This is the image on the front cover of that issue and is an oil painting of the sculpture by Steve Gilzow.

I now intend to go and see it in person before it gets covered in snow.

It is the work of Sculptor Dennis Oppenheim

This image is from an article in the Michigan Engineer

......HM.... or could you do a regular hexagon/triangle combination to fix that? :::lazybrain:::

So, maybe I missed something, but...

Why are there no more IsOTD?

It's just that a really good friend killed herself on an Aug 31 and it seems the IsOTD stopped on Aug 31...

And I'm too busy to mourn two things.

Much too busy.

I think it mostly ran out of steam. It's a big ask of one person, but it's hard to coordinate with more contributors. I try to fill in when I find something interesting. Anyone can post one -just try not to double up with someone else's and follow the titling protocol, and give credit where due for pictures -don't get us into trouble!



monster  Wednesday Sep 23 04:35 PM

sorry to hear about your friend



Griff  Wednesday Sep 23 06:32 PM

Yeah man, I'm sorry.



fargon  Thursday Sep 24 09:50 AM

Sorry for your loss.



Gravdigr  Thursday Sep 24 04:33 PM

Thanks.
