The High’s newest outdoor art installation is named Tiovivo, Spanish for “merry-go-round,” which is the first hint that it’s intended to serve as both eye-catching sculpture and children’s playscape. Form meets function meets fun. The four wooden sculptures, shaped like whimsical animals and objects, were commissioned from Spanish designer Jaime Hayon a year after his Green Chicken, a bright-green children’s rocker, was added to the museum’s decorative arts and design collection. Located in Sifly Piazza, just outside the High’s main entrance, Tiovivo will be on display until November 27.
