Monumental Works


These Monumental Works by Anthony Quinn sit in front of the Intercontinental Hotel on Atlantic Avenue. Quinn is also a very well practiced actor, and has an impressive collection of works that you can check out on his site. The news blurb on Anthony Quinn's website reads as follows:

Anthony Quinn
Foundation opens a public exhibition program at InterContinental Hotel Boston. Sponsored by Carnegie Abbey Club, Paolino Properties, Athena Group, and Boston Redevelopment Authority, the exhibition brings art into the public realm and celebrates the global community and human spirit through Anthony Quinn’s Monumental Works created in 1991 along with additional sculpture. The exhibition is a realization of a goal created by Anthony Quinn Foundation (AQF), to make artwork more prominent by making it part of the everyday experience (outside the walls of museums).

Sometimes it is just so tough to "appreciate" art that comes out of the mind of another person. These, I like. I've seen some real crap lately though that just boggles my mind.

Thanks for the beautiful photo!

I'm with George Townboy: some art is just crap, but these are pretty cool. Like three dimensional puzzles for grown-ups. Very nice!
