I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

Can You Canoe?

Canoe Sculpture Outside the Aria
May 15, 2011

It is amazing what recycled otherwise useless items that would end up in a landfill can be used for.  One of the most impressive uses it the creation of a sculpture that in some ways becomes a social statement.  There is a wonderfully amazing sculpture outside of the Aria Casino in Las Vegas created from canoes.  In a desert location the presence of canoes is rather an oxymoron and yet it fits well with the general theme of Las Vegas being a city that shouldn't be.  The sculpture portraits so many underlying messages though.  I think it is quite fitting in the grand scheme of Las Vegas echoing some of the past and present concerns.  What a wonderful way to use items that would have ended up in a landfill!  The contrast between the old, used of the canoes and new, shiny of the casino is quite impressive.
