Even though I’m still not done posting a pic from each state, thought I’d get NYC done with early. Not as if I haven’t posted 1000 images of NYC previously. This is one of the many extraordinary friezes, sculptures and murals found in the Rockefeller Center complex.
This is so gorgeous. I want to be inside the head of the craftsman.
The leaves, as drops of color, brighten the landscape, both as agreement in harmony, both as juxtaposition to contrast. However they attract, involve and conquer the heart!
In the southwestern corner of the State is the unique Chautauqua Institution, begun in 1873 as a summer training conference for Sunday school teachers but gradually developed into a nationally influential center of adult education.

Guide Note: Still an institution of learning with a religious bent, some 7,500 persons are in residence on any day during a nine-week season, and a total of over 142,000 attend scheduled public events. Over 8,000 students enroll annually in the Chautauqua Summer Schools which offer courses in art, music, dance, theater and writing skills.
