Friday Photos: Provocative Comparisons Part Two

July 29, 2011

Last week, Shannon introduced one of our 9×9 experimental programs, Provocative Comparisons.  On Saturday, I led our second Provocative Comparisons conversation focused on She, an onyx sculpture by Bosnian-French artist Bojan Šarčević, and The Icebergs, by American painter Frederick Church.  My conversation with two visitors while looking at these works of art was rather delightful, as we all shared our observations, questions, and ideas about these artworks.  I especially loved seeing new aspects of these artworks and new connections through the eyes of my partners.  What connections can you find between these two works of art?
