Button Sculptures.

Here we have a small collection of button sculptures, hope you will like them!

Lorrie's Button (Grand Rapids, Michigan.): Hy Zelkowitz created this sculpture. It's a huge red button installed on a tilted axis. "The center of the button is pierced with four large holes. The sculpture was designed for children to climb on and is installed in a playground area of the park."

The Button sculpture on the Penn Campus:
