Good morning Greenwich!
Wondering about those red planes with the heart-shaped noses that are hovering in the oak trees at the entrance of the Greenwich Arts Council?
They're a hanging outdoor sculpture installation of three fiber-glass planes from the Goodbye My Love works by prominent contemporary Cuban sculptor Esterio Segura. This installation was specially adapted for this space at the Greenwich Arts Council, 299 Greenwich Ave., from a larger, recent showing of Segura's works at Times Square in New York City. Segura’s concept for the sculptures is to reference the love that is commonly found in contemporary relationships which often requires people to be separated from one another, according to the Arts Council. The planes can symbolize departure and allude to the experience of farewell – one of the most universal and common of human interactions.
