There is another public art project that caught my friends’ attention last week. This project is on a corner of a busy intersection in a mostly residential part of the city. I remember asking the realtor about it when we were house-hunting because it definitely catches the eye. She couldn’t remember, but thought it had something to do with magnolias.
As a reminder, here’s a photo part of the public art project I showed here last week. There are several identical circular pieces scattered in uneven rows on either side of a small section of our light rail line. Each has a small cutout in the center.
I loved your guesses: a cracked alien egg, muffin tops, orange peels, falsies and breasts, artifacts from the LOST island which takes people back to 1975 if they touch one, sliced golf ball, mushroom caps, and dark side of the moon inside a bifurcated dog chew toy. Hey, you guessed ’em, I’m just passing on data. No need to vote.
Here’s the second set of sculptures. Have a crack at ’em.
You can tell by the cars in the background that they’re quite large and eye-catching. That’s ivy at the base. It’s been just like that all these years; I can’t tell it’s grown an inch. I suppose that means it wasn’t meant to cover the structures. If so, they might have planted kudzu.
Then again, the way that stuff grows, people would be afraid to stop their cars at the light.
