Outdoor Art #AtoZChallenge #WordlessWednesday

Today, for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and Wordless Wednesday, outdoor art installations from August of 2023 in North Bennington, Vermont.  This is an annual event called NBOSS and what you are about to see are works from the past 20 plus years this event has been held.

Here are some samples of more than 40 art installations we viewed during a visit in early September of 2023 after attending Bennington's annual Garlic Festival.

Gomorrah, originally built in 2000 by Stephen Davidson, who died in a car accident in 2003 at the age of 37.  Friends rebuilt the art in 2018 after a tractor-trailer accidentally knocked it down while backing down a driveway.

Fittingly called No. 2.  I don't have the artist's name for this.

By a restored train depot which is now the North Bennington town hall, a commuter waits for a train that is more than 50 years late.

Octopus's Garden by Joe Chirchirillo.

Trojan Horse. 

Angel of Death by Jack Howard-Potter.

  1. These hard installations are looking artistic

  2. I do like Trojan Horse - the teeth are magnificent!

  3. What an interesting art. You always have such interesting posts! The trojan horse is so odd...
    Thank you for sharing them!
    Happy WW and a fine week!❤️😘

  4. I love them all, but my favorites are the pencil and those teeth. Brilliant.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  5. I like Gomorrah best, as bricks are usually utilitarian, even with set in patterns.

  6. Those are very interesting pieces.

  7. The No. 2 (pencil) and the angel of death are my favorites. The Trojan horse comes in as a close third. Thank you for sharing!

  8. Very creative art works ~ love them all ~ hugs,

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

  10. This is Birgit…these are quite inventive and love the Angel of Death

  11. My favorite here is Trojan Horse, but they are all excellent and inventive examples of outdoor art to be enjoyed in all seasons.
