He's Not Real

At first glance, this appears to be a nicely dressed man taking a nap in the shade of Academy Park. At second glance, though, you realize he's not real.

This sleepy gentleman is part of the 2010 Sculpture In The Streets exhibit, a series of statues by Seward Johnson that are scattered around Albany's downtown.

Up close, the statues are obviously just that...cast bronze figures. But, seen unexpectedly from the corner of one's eye, they can be startling.

Check out All Over Albany's recent post for more about the exhibit.
