John and Mary Pappajohn........

They donated their private collection of 24 sculptures to the Des Moines Art Center.  On a four acre spot in downtown Des Moines the pieces have been installed.  My favorite is the thinking rabbit.











Art should be able to speak for itself.  If some of them didn't,  I sure am not going to defend them. I didn't take pictures of a lot of them as I deemed them not necessary.  The family must be moving from one place to another as these were all in there very large yard.

It was a long day yesterday but we did cool down.  I thank you for stopping by...........

The "thinking rabbit" is cute as can be! Is your new header photo here the pansy-like geranium? Very pretty!
