Tucson. April, 2013

My friend Simon is a public artist with remarkable work that stops passersby all over Tucson. And each time I come for a visit, I love when he takes me to see new installations that hadn’t been in place the last time I was in town. Like this larger-than-life sculpture outside the Tucson Zoo, honoring the newly arrived African elephants inside. Rusted steel planes welded together by his artistic partner Ben with tusks of chrome. Simon suggests, “Think Duchamp’s ‘Nude Descending a Staircase’.” So beautiful.
