The Red Buoys
The Akron Art Museum is currently featuring the work of artist Tony Feher, an artist who employs a wide-range of everyday materials in his creations. His art “enables us to observe and appreciate the beauty and poetry in the ordinary objects that surround us or simply look at things anew.”
As part of the exhibit, the museum commissioned a special temporary art installation, consisting of three 54-inch tall red marine buoys suspended upside down from the cantilevers that reach out from the roof of the museum, thereby incorporating the building’s architecture into the design.
The cheerful red buoys make a striking statement against the blue sky, swinging ever so gently in the breeze. Their joyful cheekiness makes me smile.
