walkerartcenter #RobertWatts, 'Fruit and Vegetable Stand' from The American Supermarket (1964/2002) | 🍐🍐🍐🍐🍐🍐🍐| On view in #InternationalPop | An underrecognized yet influential figure to emerge in the 1960s, Robert Watts aligned with many of the movements of the day—from #Fluxus, Pop, and conceptual art to #Happenings, film, and appropriation. Drawing inspiration from #MarcelDuchamp, Watts had a keen awareness of the aesthetic possibilities of the everyday, which he infused with a dry sense of humor. Watts conceived of 'The American Supermarket' as a transactional event—in 1964 when it was installed in a show of the same name visitors who purchased his pears, bananas, and other items themselves became consumers of an art about consumption. 🍐🍐 1w

walkerartcenter #ShinoharaUshio 'Coca-Cola Plan' (1964) on the right; #RobertRauschenberg 'Coca-Cola Plan' (1958) on the left. | Frustrated that so many #Popart styles and motifs were already associated with artists such as #ClaesOldenburg or #JasperJohns, Shinohara struggled with how to create an original Pop work of his own. He ultimately recreated this copy of a Rauschenberg, which he based on a black-and-white reproduction of 'Coca-Cola Plan' from an art journal. His version subtly altered the work's details, using Japanese coke bottles and a day-glo color scheme. | On view in #InternationalPop through August 29. 2w

walkerartcenter 🐇 | Today a crew carefully helped Barry Flanagan's 'Hare on Bell on Portland Stone Piers' (1983) hop out of the #Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and into storage. Curious? We shared photos of the move on Twitter at @walkerartcenter. For more info about the Garden renovation visit www.walkerart.org (link in the profile). #BarryFlanagan #sculpture #publicart 3w

Happy birthday to Siah Armajani, born in 1939. This image comes from the 1971 archives of the Walker Art Center, where he presented "Fifth Element", pictured above. This artwork was described by Martin Friedman, former director of the Walker, as “a folded gold plane floats in space with no visible means of support and rotates mysteriously on its vertical axis. The supporting device, an electromagnet developed by University of Minnesota physicists, is concealed within the white ceiling box. Armajani’s use of sophisticated technology is that of a mystic.” #SiahArmajani #HappyBirthday #Portrait #Art #Artist #OnThisDay

walkerartcenter #Happybirthday to Armajani, born #onthisday in 1939. | Traversing Siah Armajani's 'Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge' from Loring Park to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. The artist's design incorporates three types of bridge structure: beam, arch, and suspension. To underscore the sense of transition from one part to the next, Armajani painted each half a different shade: pale blue for the upward arching portion and yellow for the inverted arch. The yellow shade is based on the hue Thomas Jefferson used at his home, Monticello. The words of a poem span the bridge—can anyone name the poet (or perhaps any of the words)? #SiahArmajani #Minneapolis #PublicArt 2mon
