Don't miss " The World Through My Eyes", an exhibition of Alabama's noted self taught artist Charlie Lucas at the Birmingham Museum of Art. For his sculpture Lucas often uses machine parts and other cast off materials. Twelve of his large scale pieces are on exhibit in the museum's sculpture pit. Recently I spent an afternoon photographing all of the works in the sculpture garden. It was a photographer's paradise. I especially liked this wall mounted piece, but don't worry, I have other pieces to share.
