The Picasso Show I went to see was so dark-spirited that I was quickly drawn back out to the light.
Art spills out into the surrounding, family friendly, landscape, pictured below. The cafe has an indoor-outdoor terrace and a menu of organic salads and home baked desserts. (Albeit a bit pricey!)
The circle of sky above is found inside an interactive art piece. The cement "circle within a circle" building is reached by an unassuming pathway. The building itself is covered with tufted grass plantings and barely noticeable. I followed the path simply because it was there and it led me into a seemless, round, windowless space with a tall rectangular slit entrance and domed ceiling, cut out to frame the clouds. There is surely a correlation to Stonehenge. If I had a more academic nature, I might research if the rising sun hits the doorway on the solstice, or not. As it is, I'm happy that I was provoked to wonder the point. Sometimes living the questions is enough, to paraphrase my header quote.
The lower levels are windowless to preserve the art from exposure to daylight, but the transitional areas of long, broad, shallow-stepped ramps have the giant ferns and filtered sun of the rain-forest floor.
Trees are obviously chosen for color and scale. These maples encompass the sculptures and will be a flamboyant exclamation, amidst all that green, in the fall.
