Midwest Mosaic Artists! Put down your nippers and jump in the car! Niki de Saint Phalle –

Le Cabeza – Giant Skull Sculpture recently installed in the Missouri Botanical Gardens, St Louis. Part of the Niki de Saint Phalle Exhibit.

Niki 045, originally uploaded by mistone.

Here is one of the sculptures you will be able to see in the Missouri Botanical Gardens “Niki in the Garden” Exhibition.  This exhibition will be there from April 27th through October 31st 2008.  Don’t miss it!

Here is a link to a huge background of information on one of my very favorite artists. What a charmed and charming body of work. Please check it out at Niki Charitable Art Foundation.

In addition to that site is another for her sculpture garden in Italy. It is based on Tarot Cards and is quite a fantasy. That site is: IL GIARDINO DEI TAROCCHI”

I can’t describe how I reacted when I first saw photos of her “Three Graces” dancing in a water feature in Atlanta’s Botanical Garden….They are imposing joyous and colorful. My kinda stuff.

Don’t take my word for it- look it up- follow these links. Make plans for your trip to MoBot….Heck they are even looking for volunteers to be intrerpretors for the exhibit. How much fun would that be?????

OK. Get Busy. ;-).
