StreetWorks - Fat Naked Girls, Botero Goes Parking Lot

StreetWorks is usually a graffiti blog. Starting today, as long as I'm shooting, it'll document all forms of publicly displayed art, from the gutter to the gallery.

With that in mind, this week's feature is the Gary Nader Sculpture Park featuring bronze work by Fernando Botero. The sculptures are lined up in the parking lot of the Gary Nader Fine Art gallery in Miami's Wynwood Art District.

According to Conrado de la Torre, Gary Nader representative, each Botero sculpture, all of which are bronze and made in a foundry in Pietrasanta, Italy, costs from 1 to 2 million dollars. They are all for sale and Art Basel is coming up, so get your view on before some rich collector hauls 'em out the parking lot and throws 'em in their living room.

Botero's works are world famous and can be found in Paris, China and Monte Carlo so take the opportunity to see them free while you got it. Also look out for Gary Nader Fine Art at this Saturday's Wynwood art walk when they unleash their Picasso's, Wifredo Lam's, and Frida Kahlo's for a free Latin American Modern and Contemporary Masters exhibition.

The sculpture park also features the unique carved-marble work of Pablo Atchugarry and a giant french fry looking sculpture by John Henry.
