Alexandre Arrechea_Orange Tree
Orange Tree is a 20 foot steel sculpture created by Cuban born artist Alexandre Arrechea, with multi-limbed basketball hoop “branches” surrounded by scattered basketballs to mimic fallen fruit. Orange Tree shifts familiar structures to engage viewers’ perceptions of form and function, while raising questions about the role of street sports in urban culture.”

Orange Tree is on exhibit at the Bronx Museum through June 6, one of several reasons I’m thinking of checking out the museum soon.

You can see more of Arrechea’s very interesting and varied work at his site.
