Wiesbadener Kunstsommer im Nerotal

June 24, 2010

It is always a pleasure to enjoy our nearest park - Nerotal - just blocks from home, but this week we've had an extra treat - summer art (kunstsommer) in the park. While neither of us are the biggest fans of modern art, it's always nice to have something else to appreciate in town.

Over the past few days, we've taken a few photos of the exhibits:

Thought for sure these were signs to keep pesky dogs like Bailey away from the art, but in fact they were the art themselves. The one on the right says something about charges for growing plants are removed, and the left one basically says to leave the park as you found it (I think).

These were two of our favorites (Bailey liked them too). Hope the yellow benches stick around after the exhibit is over.

Bailey's not so sure about the framed mounds of dirt. I'm not so sure about the "wolf in sheep's clothing," fur-covered tree. At least it all did what art is supposed to do - promote thinking and conversation.

On a side note - Germany and USA won their last matches this week and will proceed onto the next round. Go teams!
