da Vinci's Horse

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is a 132-acre botanical garden and outdoor sculpture park located in Grand Rapids Township, Michigan in Kent County. Commonly referred to as Meijer Gardens, it has quickly become one of the most significant sculpture experiences in the Midwest and an emerging worldwide cultural destination. In May, 2009 it was named one of the top "30 Must-See Museums" in the world. It is Michigan's second largest tourist attraction.

One of the highlights is a sculpture of Leonardo da Vinci's Horse: The American Horse by Nina Akamu. The bronze sculpture is 24 feet tall.

I saw this small statue reproduction of a TWH bust on Ebay the other day and thought it was nice.
I don't know who the original artist was.

Horse Statues of the Bluegrass
Part 3

Here's a couple of amusing statues adorning the entrance to Woodhill Shopping Center in Lexington, Ky.
These statues are right on New Circle road and might be the most visible and seen statues in the city.
There is an identical set of the same statues on the other side of the entrance.

I just discovered these statues at the Lexington Airport a couple of months back. I'm sure they aren't new, but for some reason I never noticed them. They are on the baggage end of the building over near the rental cars. Quite frankly, they are some of the nicest I've seen. This is Lexington's way of greeting folks to the Bluegrass and saying: "We are the horse capital of the world, come back and see us again".

The George Ford Morris Exhibit

My last stop at the Kentucky Horse Park was the American Saddlebred Museum. The centerpiece of the museum is an exhibit of ORIGINAL paintings by George Ford Morris, who is probably America's most famous show horse artist. This was a real treat! I have long been a fan of his work. I had some problems photographing due to the lighting, so please pardon the flash glare on many of these.

No problem Dutch,

I enjoyed playing "photojournalist" on my trip to the Ky Horse Park.
Have you ever been to the ASB Museum at the Horse Park? If you have not, you'll get to see a glimpse of it here this Sunday when I post the rest of the photos I took at the Museum last month.

Yeah I've been a couple of times. See something different every time I go. I think they change the displays every so often. I remember seeing Earl Teater's old show saddle in there once. It wasn't a cutback either. I forget what kind of English saddle it was, maybe the pommel or something like that.

Thanks for the photos, Smitty. The KHP seems to have doubled the size of the ASB museum in time for the WEG. I went in there and got lost among the exhibits.

Dark Spirit's Rebel Painting



This piece was painted by Facebook WHT Member Jo A. Caldwell Brundige and was displayed in the lobby of The Best Western in Shelbyville.

Jo said...

"In the spring that year, Ron and Sue Patel called me and told me they would be building a new motel in S'ville and said it would be finished in October. They asked if I'd be willing to paint the new WGC for that year to hang in the lobby. I said yes. I'll go ahead and get that done. Sue said "Wait, Jo, you don't know who it will be". I said, I'll go ahead and paint the one I think will win. If he doesn't, I'll keep it and do a new one". It was a fun challenge and I didn't have to keep it."
