WORKS OF ART

Mom is starting with my picture because she says I'm her favorite piece of ART she must want a favor; however, the post is about a recent tour the peeps I was not invited took of the new N.C. Museum of Art to see the Norman Rockwell Exhibit.
The new museum officially opened in April of 2010.
The Rockwell Exhibit was absolutely fabulous...no pictures allowed inside of course. Mom thought she'd share some of the pictures she took of the exterior of the new building and some of the sculptures...which left hers scratching her head
If you would like to learn more about the new building and its unique design, click here

Below is a picture of one of the many reflection pools.  
On either side of the pool are wings of the museum.  The design is still growing on us.  North Carolina is known for is native brick....no brick on this.
This is the walkway leading into the new building
Another reflecting pool but Mom took it to show the domes
on the building
Mom thinks this looks like a large wasp hive (head scratch 1)
This plaque sheds a little light on the very unusual object
Yes this is a stainless steel tree (head scratch 2)!!! It was one of the first sculptures put up outside long before the museum opened.  Mom looked at it for nearly a year from the road before she saw it up close.
This plaque sits below the tree
Mom really likes this...she thought it would look nice in our backyard as possibly a fountain.....but it was too large for her to fit in her purse
This plaque tells you a little about it.
We hope you enjoyed the outdoor tour of the new NC Art Museum.
We love our state and enjoy sharing it with you all.

Thursday Theme Song: (Let me be your) Teddy Bear

Once again it is TTS and we thank Hootin' Anni for sponsoring this fun meme ...  we are addicted.
Today's song is by the KING ELVIS PRESLEY...yep the mom is a big fan of EP. She and Dad saw him perform in Greensboro, NC about two years before his untimely death.  The lyrics are short and sweet but the video at the end is ROCKIN'.
Baby let me be
your lovin teddy bear
Put a ribbon chain around my neck,
Oh let me be your teddy bear

I don't wanna be your tiger
'Cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be your lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind you love enough
Just wanna be, your Teddy Bear
Put a ribbon chain around my neck
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be your
TEDDY BEAR.
All of the teddy bears in today's pictures
reside in my house.  They are way older than me. They were all treasured friends of my human sissy when she was just a wee
lass.  Mom told me they all have names...but she can only remember two names Brownie the big brown bear, and Biggy, the Panda, who is the oldest, ~ 35 years old, and most cherished if mom throws him out she could lose her Mother status.  MOL
Now get ready to rock and roll as you listen to EP singing
Let me be your Teddy Bear
