Sculpture At the Columbus Museum of Art

My annual visit to Columbus, Ohio, brought a new discovery. "Karnak (Sculpture Court)" rises up from the edge of the back lawn leading to the new wing of the Columbus Museum of Art. Paul Feeley's flat, shiny shapes stand like ripple-edged surfboards planted in the sand. Walk within them and you are treated to glimpses of the museum, of the sun bouncing off curved edges and of fat rickrack shadows. It is somehow whimsical and dignified, active and yet smoothly calm. And anyone walking down the street can enjoy it.
