Ted Sitting Crow Garner – Baile de Alacrán

Galvanized Steel

“Baile de Alacrán,” which means “Dance of the Scorpion” in Spanish, is made by a Native American artist living in the Chicago area. He says his sculpture is “cursive, transparent and abstract.” It was made by bending pipes to which expanded open work metal sheets were welded.  Garner is known for creating sculptural benches.  This sculpture, while not a comfortable place to sit, has a bench-like quality.
