The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art has created a sculpture garden across the street from its museum building, in a park called The Green at 435 S Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC, where it has placed several large mosaic sculptures. These are very well done pieces of artworks, identified as being created by artist Niki De Saint Phalle. Some either had no identification plaque or were placed where they were easily overlooked. This large mosaic representing a golf player is titled Golf Player. It is made of polyurethane foam, resin, steel armature, stained and mirrored glass, tumbled stones, and stainless steel. The Golf Player was created in 2001 and is stated to be 107.5 inch x 57 inch x 57 inch in size. The artwork has no audio explanation of this work and is located toward the S College Street end of The Green park.
