Public Art or Eyesore?

Blogroll Me!

Every week James Howard Kunstler does a program called the Kunstler Cast hosted by Duncan Creary. This week and next week Jim and Duncan explore the subject of public art and public eyesores.
I took art classes in college and remember these non artistic pieces of art that were really poking fun at the publics ignorance of what constitutes art. This sculpture is called erosion and is a perfect example of a public eyesore masquerading as art, in my opinion. But as both Duncan and Jim point out, it is a perfect fit for the ugly building it is in front of! I can't wait till next episode of the Kunstler Cast, to see what other "treasures" are presented.
