A number of iconic images of the World Trade Center towers have been shared over the years, but this week I was pleasantly surprised to learn about a few more. This selection from a 1982 art installation by Agnes Denes, in Downtown Manhattan’s Battery Park.
Two acres of wheat planted and harvested by conceptual artist Agnes Denes in 1982.
Yet again we have another artistic restoration to chuckle about. This time a 15th-century statue of Mary, Saint Anne, and baby Jesus painted in a fanciful, neon palette.
“I’m not a professional painter but I’ve always liked painting and the statues really needed painting,” said amateur conservator, María Luisa Menéndez of Rañadorio, a village in northwestern Asturias, Spain.
