“Ticket Master” Sculpture by Mia Liu
My husband tells remarkable stories about his teenage summers spent working at the Opryland Theme Park. One day, while assigned to the turnstile as a ticket taker, a park visitor commenced labor. His co-worker became a defacto OB for what was thankfully a safe delivery. I’m not sure what name was bestowed on the child, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was Tammy.
Artist Mia Liu had a more upscale assignment collecting admissions at the Guggenheim Museum. Rather than dispose of the stubs she reuses them to create these wonder wheels. These too will turn some heads.
