Cloistered art — Serra’s Tilted Spheres as an example of derelict art


Cloistered art -- Serra's Tilted Spheres as an example of derelict art

This lovely sculpture at Toronto’s Pearson airport is located (somewhere) inside the US terminal gate, which makes it impossible to see for other travellers or would-be viewers. Its value would be enhanced by moving it to a more publicly accessible location within the airport. As such it is one example of derelict “cloistered” art.

  1. What is it about airports? Think of the gorgeous Bill Reid sculpture at Vancouver International airport. At least the Reid is for all eyes to see. 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on Artinpublicplaces's Blog and commented:

    Another Canadian example of derelict art in public places.
