Henry Moore at Kew

Ardis wanted to see the Henry Moore exhibit and spring flowers at Kew Gardens. The Henry Moore foundation has loaned Kew Gardens 28 of its large-scale sculptures until end of March. The Foundation has been generous in that Kew only had to pay transportation and installation costs. As much as I enjoyed the Chihuly exhibit, I find the Henry Moore sculputures a much better fit. I wish the foundation would loan at least 5 of the sculptures (NOT the white one) on a more permanent basis. The building below houses an exhibit that provides information about Henry Moore's life and art. He drew inspiration from bones dug up from his farm in Perry Green, just outside London. Highly recommended!
