When you visit Hartford's fine Wadsworth Atheneum art museum, be sure to have a look at Alexander Calder's Stegosaurus in Burr Mall.

 
 

 

Between Wadsworth Atheneum and the attractive city executive office building, Burr Mall is a shady, fragrant spot with a fountain and a fine—if incongruously placed—stabile by Alexander Calder called Stegosaurus (1971).

Across Prospect Street from Burr Mall, take a look at the interesting buildings: the Masonic Temple and the Hartford Times Building.

The facade for the latter was once the front of a church in New York, which explains its architecture, odd for a newspaper building!
