Along with the architecture, there is some pretty amazing art, both indoors and out. Although I have a weird aversion to oddly textured things, one of my favorites is a Dale Chihuly's Yellow Neon Chandelier in the Columbus Visitors' Center.
As for statues, I love this one:Crack the Whip by Oklahoma artist Jo Saylors
And this sculpture is a favorite:
Made of scrap metal Tinguely scavenged from local junkyards, it is like a big game of Mousetrap. When running, it is loud and fun, and sits just yards away from an indoor playground.
And in honor of the Dalai Lama's visit to Indiana this week, here is our happy Buddha. Clay brought this little statue home from his first trip to China. The kids all loved it so; he had to bring back several more on his next trip. I'm sure these statues are equivalent to the shot glasses and souvenir spoons you pick up in American tourist traps, but I love him anyway.
