Orange Baby Leaving Long Beach Museum, Egg Coming

New, 3 comments

"We've received lots of comments about the baby and many of them negative. We have received some positive comments but some of the neighbors who live nearby have complained about the presence of the baby." That's Ed Fosmire, director of marketing at the Long Beach Museum of Art, talking to the Press-Telegram's Tiffany Rider about artist Matt Wedel's piece "Child." After eights months, the 16-foot sculpture is leaving the museum (it was always just a temporary stay). This photo was from the installation; more images are here.
