I believe the same artist did all of these works, but I can’t be positive as I couldn’t find labels.
But they were wonderful to explore and were hidden enough that it was a surprise when the rugged path we were following led to one.

I made it back to the city just in time to see the last day of Nick Cave’s public art piece ‘Heard’ at Grand Central Station. I wasn’t in the most optimal viewing location but through the cracks of the crowd I witnessed more than a dozen colorful horses gallop and dance through the hall, transforming a location of bustling transition into a spectacle of playful wonder.

I am in Dallas for a couple days and got the opportunity to visit The Warehouse, which houses curated works from the Rachofsky and the Rose Collections. It was truly amazing to see such an incredible collection up close and the current exhibition Parallel Views: Italian and Japanese Art from the 1950s, 60s and 70s offered an interesting distinction not only between Italian and Japanese art, but also with American movements.
Check out the Rachofsky Collection Website Here.
