This is not a pipe

We knew there was an Orosco in the gardens of the San Diego Museum of Modern Art at La Jolla but took a while to agree it was the long length of garden hose that wound around the paths and plant beds. So, award for the hardest to find and best art work we saw in La Jolla goes to Gabriel Orosco’s Long Yellow Hose made in 1996. There is another version of this work in the Miami Art Museum.
