Kendall Sculpture Gardens

Despite the heat and humidity, we spent part of Saturday over in Purchase at the Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens. Even though there was a period in my life when I’d lived about 3 miles away from the Pepsico headquarters, I think the last time I’d been to see the gardens was when I was a senior in high school.

While I appreciated the Pomodoro, the Ernst, the Segal, and the Miro pieces more than in the past, the works that continued to grab me were those by French Cubist Henri Laurens and especially the lesser known British sculptor David Wynne.

His Girl with a Dolphin was my favorite of the garden’s pieces back then and it continues to be my favorite now.
