After a trip to Tucson and then Memphis we had my husbands old college buddy and his family come to visit. Steve is an art teacher in Grand Rapids, Colorado so I took him to see the "Niki in the Garden" sculpture exhibit at Garfield Park, Chicago.
I LOVED this exhibit. Niki de Saint Phalle was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France and raised in New York. She was self taught and has exhibits all over like Hon in Stockholm , Stravinsky Fountain in Paris , Noah's Ark in Jerusalem ,Queen Califia's Magical Circle in Escondido and her most important work, the Tarot Garden in Tuscany.
