A 19-ton bronze depicting
Martin Luther King, Coretta Scott King and a love that helped change the world,
has inspired praise, jokes and bile. The city of Boston unveiled a new memorial
sculpture in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. The
reception for the 22-foot statue has been decidedly mixed — ranging from
enthusiastic plaudits to consternation and outright jeers. The monument, by
artist Hank Willis Thomas, is meant to honor the relationship between the
Kings. It was inspired by a 1964 photograph of the couple hugging, after King
had won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Another entry into immersive art. Taking over the location that had been the Museum of Money on Wall St., Monet's Garden recreates Giverny and chronicles artist Monet's life. You can even create your own water lily to put into the garden pond.
