Phipps Conservatory ~ Gargoyles in the Garden

The summer exhibit (through Sept. 12, 2010) at Phipps Conservatory, features the collaborative efforts of three local artists, and includes a massive 1,000 pound gargoyle in the Palm court. in addition to Venetian griffins and working gargoyle spouts. In the South Conservatory, three Pittsburgh churches have been replicated by Tolin FX.
Located in the East Room, Joshua Space created floating gargoyles using natural materials he collected, including branches, wood, and dried leaves.All very impressive!

How fun to find friendly gargoyles in the garden. I am assuming they were friendly. I bet the kiddos love them.
