Star Fountain, 1993
We first heard of Niki de Saint Phalle
(1930-2002) last year in Hannover, Germany, where 3 of her Nanas were gifted to the city. I won't take your time to tell you about this incredible woman and her art, if she's new to you. Just click on the link if you want more.

was exhibiting several of her sculptures over the past summer months and through December of this year. For me it was a link between Hannover and Atlanta, where we live throughout the year.
This Star Fountain
sculpture, from 1993, welcomes you to the exhibition. So I, too, will start here in a little series of breath-taking art from an amazing woman. Enjoy.
Happy Birthday t...
