About Art Outdoors

I’m Deborah Lee, and here is why I chose to focus on art outdoors:

Art has always been a source of pleasure, sustenance, and surprise for me. As an educator, museum volunteer and writer, I love to connect people with art. My particular passion lately is art outdoors, including statues, murals, public sculpture, and monuments. Maybe because such art was out there all the time, I used to tune it out. Then thanks to many mentors and reliable resources, I began to notice what I had missed before, for instance:

  • juicy stories about who created a local monument and why
  • fascinating features of a neighborhood mural
  • opportunities to interact with playful structures in a park.

My mission here is to fill in a few missing pieces that could add to family fun or to memorable moments in someone’s day. Whether or not the mission succeeds,  this site should help me structure my own records of art that I have enjoyed with friends and family members of all ages. So far my photos and notes refer to art in the Boston area, where I live.  Yet I hope they will relate somehow to what you might experience wherever you are now on earth.

    All good stuff. I most liked the duck family, Logjam, and the picture of the large fan-like outdoor installation. You have a great eye. Thanks.
