1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    I love the Modern. It's hard to talk about sculpture in this area nowadays without at least mentioning the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

    Here's one of my favorite pieces from there:

    And one from an artist who survived life in German-occupied, and later communist Poland:

    http://www.nashersculpturecenter.org...t&ObjectID=240


    I didn't mention the Nasher because those are inside the Museum rather than out in a public place. I should mention North Park Mall in Dallas, which is owned by the Nasher family and is full of interesting sculptures.

    long time no see Tom, how be you?
    Thanks for asking Matt, can't complain. Or, I could, but it wouldn't be taken well. Budapest is pretty great this time of year, getting better, and when I need a break I take off for Italy or Spain. Currently working plans B through G since plan A, subject of infamous drunk posting, is still in the US. Un?fortunately none of them have a six foot tall vagina. You?

    Tom
