I did not realize I had seen a Roy Lichtenstein until I went web searching for the name of this piece. Struck by the whimsy and colors, I photographed the sculpture during a personal trip to Philadelphia several years ago. Read more about the sculpture and the Rittenhouse Square Tour here.
Here, again, I was struck by bold colors. The garden-sculpture-garden is tucked out of sight; I visited it in on a walk with family familiar with the campus. I was surprised to learn that the landscape architect is Michael Van Valkenburgh who I associate with more "naturalized" landscape design. For example, Teardrop Park in NYC, Wellesley College Master Plan, and Allegheny Riverfront Park in Pittsburgh. However, as I write this, I realize that the Kraus Campo is similar to the restored Boston Children's Museum landscape, especially from an aerial perspective. Read Marty Carlock's article in the Dec. 2008 Landscape Architecture magazine - "Playful, But Not a Playground: Boston Children’s Museum brings learning outside."
