Playing Angels

1950 by Carl Milles


From the Art Museum it’s just 1.5 miles to Carl Milles’s wonderful Playing Angels on Kelly Drive.

Atop 20-foot pedestals, the slim figures are “playing” in the sense that they are blowing horns. They are also naked and dancing, qualities that certainly add to the playful spirit.

Born in Sweden, Milles was particularly known for slender, childlike figures.
