I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.
Over 120 must-see
contemporary art sites across the USA—museums, sculpture parks, college
art venues, art centers, architectural sites and visionary sites that
deserve recognition and are not often found in other
travel guides. These off-the-beaten-path art venues have great
collections, are not overly crowded, exhibit contemporary art that
you’ve never viewed before, and oftentimes are free.
From San Francisco Book Review:
Put this paperback treasure
in the car glove compartment, or your backpack, or on any reading
counter. Filled with colorful photos of stunning art sites located
across the United States, these images will both entrance
and amaze you. The startling sculptures displayed against placid
greenery or reflecting waters provoke imagination and trigger wonder.
Sculpture parks are dotted across the country. Travel to Pennsylvania to
view Andy Warhol’s work, or visually step on “The
Helical Staircase” in the Florida Dali Museum. In Los Angeles, the
Watts Towers sharply points to the sky like church spires. Constructed
from recycled scraps over a thirty year period, the edifice is a
testimony to one man’s passionate obsession.
