I thought some of you might enjoy a heads up about a special exhibit going on in Burlington/Alamance County until the end of October. It is being done by the Alamance Art's Council in honor of their 50th year. The Exhibit will be in place until the end of October of this year. Here is the web page for the arts council so you can see where each statue is located: http://www.artsalamance.com/exhibitions.html

The statues have amazing details.

Here is a link to a slideshow music movie I made with some of the pictures I took as we went around looking at them: http://s56.photobucket.com/albums/g173/Kit...mgAnch=imgAnch1

We have seen all but 2 of them thus far.

And here is a link to the official J Seward Johnson site where you can see more statues and learn more about how he makes them look so real: http://www.sewardjohnson.com/site/index.html

Iwish the sculptures were on display permanently. My favorite would have to be the two sculptures hugging near the Burlington train station. Everyday you can find couples young and old taking photos. Great post ILoveCallingNCHome

You know, I've considered that-but I also counter wondered if we'd start to take them for granted over time. I like the idea of having traveling exhibits coming to the area like this as a way to draw people to the area that might not ever give Burlington/Alamance Co a thought otherwise. It would be nice though if one of them could stay in a simi permanent location after the showing though.

I was struck at how perfectly placed they each were. Each was put in areas of town where they fit well.
