Art in Public Places

This is a garden at the Myra Museum in Grand Forks, ND. This water feature is in front of the original Grand Forks post office, built in 1868, the oldest building in the city. The garden is the newest garden at the historical museum. It features primarily prairie plants and grasses.

Neat place! Of course, my eye immediately went to the pond and reflections over on the left.

I love this.....it just says "classic" to me, and the garden just fits perfectly with the building.

Angela, what a cool picture! It could just as well be in Romania or somewhere in Europe. It would make a neat painting.
