|Jaume Plensa, The Alchemist|
And I blurt out something like "WhatthehellisthatisthatlikeaJaumePlensasculpture?"
That means, though, that it's only staying put till the end of the year, so you only have a month or two to go and check it out.
But seriously - why can't it be there permanently, all you generous MIT alumni? It's perfect for the Institute, and it's well-sited at 77 Mass. Ave. (The view from inside, at left.) As Hub Review readers know, I'm a big Plensa fan, and have cited him as producing just the kind of public art that Boston should be investing in. And here my alma mater was doing precisely that very thing! Who knew?
Well, great minds, etc. Now if only those great minds (greater than mine!) on the Charles could come together on a plan to buy this nifty thing!
Yeah, MIT - this means you! This isn't rocket science! Buy the Plensa!!
