For a dose of ingenuity and and inspiration, we've put togwether a collection of favorite outdoor art installations. More than basic gallery works, art installations tend to be pure imagination and creativity, a pairing of visual beauty and practical ingenuity. These pieces are so incredible, they can't be contained indoors and must literally become part of the landscape. Or cityscape, as the case may be.
Below are just a few examples of inspiring outdoor at installations - enjoy
