Radiance

8/24/2010:

A few weeks ago I posted a picture of the 2004 sculpture installed outside the Adler Journalism Building at the University of Iowa, in Iowa City. I was in Baton Rouge last weekend and came across this sculpture by the same artist titled “Radiance” at the School of the Coast and Environment at LSU.

Jim Sanborn has had work exhibited at the High Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Phillips Collection and the Hirshhorn Museum. He has been commissioned to create artwork for such sites as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. elonka.com/kryptos/sanborn.html

The Trinity Railway Express (or TRE) is a commuter rail line in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex. It was established by an interlocal agreement between Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) Named after the Trinity River, which flows between Fort Worth and Dallas, the TRE was launched on December 30, 1996, shortly after the inaugural service of Dallas’ light rail system, operating from Union Station to the South Irving Station in Irving. This is not an HDR image, but a single exposure tweaked in photoshop and lightroom.
