Outdoor art adventures

You don't have to go to a museum to find great art. There are marvelous outdoor pieces in cities and towns all over the world. (Think Calders just sitting there on the sidewalks of New York. There's one that looks like a big bunch of red lollipops downtown by City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge.)

Wherever you travel, keep your eyes open for interesting sculptures, murals and other outdoor installations - like this colorful piece near the castle walls in Tarragona, Spain.

If you live near Boston or are planning to visit, check out this story I wrote for a recent issue of Boston Parents Paper that tells you where to find some great al fresco art in Beantown.
