di Suvero's bad beams, great sky -- at Crissy Field

Now starring at Crissy Field: "Huru", an Australian aboriginal word meaning both "hello" and "goodbye".
But don't worry--this and 10 other monstrosities will be gone at end of May.

I'm sorry, but I just don't GET di Suvero's mish-mashes. To me they are colossal duds, gun-like, perhaps a high-school metal-shop project gone horribly wrong. But yes, I went around to each and every one of them and tried my best to render them in their best light.

Which made me realize--I should have been shooting the light all along.

You are just blowing me away with these black and white images lately Donald. I get what you mean about the so-called art such as these. I look at stuff like that and think "I can do that".

I loathe de Suvero and Richard Sierra as well. Huge angular monstrosities that do nothing for the spirit but sure are a blot on the landscape. You are the only person who has made them look good and that's because you are photographing the light.
