Found this scene on a lunchtime walk around Union Station. Part abstract and part political. Make of it what you will.
Just some funky birdhouses hanging on a light pole in the Crossroads Art District. One of my favorite places in KC,full of art,eats and odd stuff. These creations are across from Leedy-Voulkos Art Center,another gem in this city.

Took a trip recently to Omaha to see the final days of an exhibition at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts with some work by Anne Lindberg. Her installation of thousands of colorful threads in the corner of the room is amazing. This photo in no way does it any justice,it's mesmerizing. You stand in front of it and it just vibrates with color and light. So worth the trip.
Omaha has some great outdoor sculptures, their placement is really intriguing. There were animals all over downtown protruding from buildings. Nice touch.
Cloth that has been rolled up with eucalyptus leaves inside and left to stain a beautiful pattern on them.
One of the artists,Erin M Riley, at the Bemis Center involved in the Open Studios. She made some really amazing photo-realistic weavings. Not your usual themes on woven materials.
