Sculpture As Found Art
Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions. It is one of the plastic arts. Durable sculptural processes originally used carving (the removal of material) and modelling (the addition of material, as clay), in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials but, since Modernism, there has been an almost complete freedom of materials and process.

Garbage Eating Goat, by Artist: Sister Paula Turnbull, As A Sculpture, As Found Art, Spokane, Washington

Surrounded by a grotto of basalt columns is one of the most perennially popular remnants of Riverfront Park's past - the "Garbage Goat." Sculpted by Sister Paula Turnbull, a local nun and leading figure in Inland Northwest arts, this statue seems like an unlikely source of controversy. Yet, it became part of one of the oddest and longest-lasting debates during Expo 1974. Highlighting the hidden tensions of the fair's themes and exposing the attitudes of Spokanites and fair visitors alike, this steel goat became a cipher for understanding the world's fair.[from Spokane Historical Society website]

Castle In A Front Yard, As Found Art Sculpture, N. Jefferson & Cheshire Avenue, Eugene, Oregon

A castle (from Latin: castellum) is a type of fortified structure built during the Middle Ages by predominantly the nobility or royalty and by military orders. Scholars debate the scope of the word castle, but usually consider it to be the private fortified residence of a lord or noble. This is distinct from a palace, which is not fortified; from a fortress, which was not always a residence for royalty or nobility; and from a fortified settlement, which was a public defense -- though there are many similarities among these types of construction.[from wikipedia]
