Purple mountains and amber grain are not the only elements of a scenic drive cross-country.  In Indianapolis you can see a bright yellow truck sticking up from the ground.  In seattle, a pod of submarine fins protrudes from a grassy clearing.  Across the U.S there are countless instillations eager for visitors.  Below is a list of cities that are filled with creative landscapes, and links to guide you through your journey.

“Awesome. Some of the examples you mentioned above remind me of a piece that was outside the Museum on Contemporary Art in Chicago. It was a car and trailer made to appear as if they crashed landed from the sky and were planted in the ground. It is good to see that more and more cities are progressing with their public art initiatives. Some of the works are fantastic and they really liven up these (sometimes) blah urban areas.”
