That's so cool!

Kristy,
I thought so, too. These two lawn sculptures (really one split into two sections by the walkway) were an interesting surprise. I'd like to see them filled with water after a heavy rain.

Gorgeous, Stephanie. I've never been there - thank you for sharing this.

Diane,
My pleasure. If you're ever in Houston, I highly recommend a visit to this museum. The art will take your breath away, especially the Cy Twombly gallery. More Menil posts are forthcoming. I only wish they allow photographing inside but understandably they don't.
