SIDEWALK JUDGE

Seward Johnson is one of America's most beloved sculptors, and he recreates life in our times, in vivid, realistic, and interactive sculptures that can be found around the world.  His sense of humor, and his affection for people, is evident in all of his works.  This sculpture has been recently purchased by the Arts Commission to reside permanently in the Town of Yountville. The life-like "Sidewalk Judge" is currently our most Instagrammed piece on the Art Walk.

Here is a poem inspired by this sculpture:

Sidewalk Judge

Marianne Lyon

A lone man sits on a park bench. Watches oak tree bravado the morning.

Bluebirds’ ballerina across the cloudless sky. Strollers’ conversings rhythm the air.

He bids me sit next to him. Allow the sun to paradise my thoughts. Where is his cell phone?
