Cleveland, Ohio: Judy's Crawling Hand

"Judy's Hand Pavilion," is a 25-foot-high version of the sculptor's wife's hand. Doubles as an outdoor shelter in bad weather, if you don't mind lingering under what looks like a giant, severed, crawling appendage.

"Judy's Hand Pavilion" is outside the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland.

[Shelbie, 01/18/2020]

Although it evokes Thing from the Addams Family, or the 1963 horror film "The Crawling Hand," this is an artistic public shelter, 25 feet high and 10 feet wide. It's a cast of the hand of Judy Ledgerwood, wife of Tony Tasset, also known for making a giant eyeball.
