I’ll try to be spookier tomorrow, but Saturday is Adventure Day, and today’s adventure was Solomon’s Castle. It’s not very Halloweeny, but I’ll try to post the most seasonal pics.
Here, this lion is a little scary:
The castle is the home and gallery of sculptor, Howard Solomon. The exterior of the castle is covered in discarded tin printing plates from a local paper. They have a shimmery iridescence in the sunlight.
Solomon works primarily in metal and wood assemblage, though he also made all of the stained glass windows that grace the castle.
The tour included more PPM (puns per minute) than I have ever experienced in my life. I thought guided Disney rides were bad. I’m not sure I’ll be able to use puns myself for at least a month. The art, though often well-done, wasn’t my thing, but it was still a very interesting trip into Solomon’s brain. A very good Adventure Saturday.
