A little holiday stroll

Puddle Jumpers by Glenna Goodacre near Viad Tower in Phoenix

Lighting candles with special meaning. Traveling far and wide. Exchanging gifts and goodies. Feasting on favorite family recipes. Helping folks in need. We’ve all been busy in recent days and weeks.

If you’re eager to return to some semblance of calm, consider a series of strolls enjoyed in solitude, or with family and friends. If the kids come along, encourage them to bring camera or sketchpad to catch unexpected finds along the way.

The following photos spotlight various places throughout the Valley where you’ll find lovely statues and works of sculpture that’ll add a bit of wonder to your holiday strolls.

The Joy of Music by George Lundeen (Fountain Hills)

Work at the Cofco Chinese Cultural Center (Phoenix)

 Cancer…There’s Hope by Victor Salmones in Cancer Survivors Park (Phoenix)

Sightseeing by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. near Viad Tower (Phoenix)

Work near the Arizona Science Center (Phoenix)

Work at the entrance to the Carver Museum (Phoenix)

Work at Scottsdale Fashion Square (Scottsdale)

Okay, so maybe that last one can wait for another day. But let me know if you stumble on other sculptures or statues, and have photos to share with our readers — I’d love to feature them in a future post.
