This morning, we mentioned the approval of a new public art design destined for the Public Square downtown. Designed by North Carolina artist Thomas Sayre, this project was a redesign from the original plan that included “mock cranes and a fog machine” and the official rendering is shown in the image above. From WPLN:
Sayre’s new plan features two columns some thirty feet high. The bottom part of each column will be steel, with a rotatable top of radial glass sheets forming the outline of a larger-than-life person, with one hand pointing.
After dropping the link on Twitter, we noticed some pretty strong opinions on the project: Why couldn’t we keep it local? Why does it look like something out of the Neverending Story? What exactly are they pointing at? At least it doesn’t look like a roller coaster. So you tell us:
