TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! MERRIAM COUNCIL APPROVES CONTROVERSIAL $100K CATERPILLAR & PILE OF ROCKS ART!!!



Thanks to some of the smartest denizens of our blog community, we talked about this silly public art move last month.

And now it's news fact.

KCUR: Merriam City Council Narrowly Approves Caterpillar, Butterfly And Cairn Public Art Project

Deets:

The sculpture, "Hmmm..." is designed by Colorado-based artist Joshua Wiener. A nine-foot tall caterpillar stands next to a 12-foot cairn, a stack of granite river boulders, with a butterfly perched on top. Weiner's proposal was selected by a resident-led arts committee that reviewed 45 submissions.

And so we ask . . .

IS THIS ART OR AN EPIC WASTE OF MONEY FOR AN INCREASINGLY CASH-STRAPPED SUBURB?!?!?

You decide . . .

What a joy!

This is wonderful public art.

It has my full support. They should build 10 more like it and extend it all the way down main street. I might go visit it on weekends.

Is there anyone on the left who actually knows art, or remembers what it used to be? Real creativity not this fake "creativity" prog art. Where the good little progs are told: this is art, appreciate it; and they stand around it oohing and awwing. I kid you not, the prog-Dems are so brainwashed by their party, you could put a pile of dog crap on the ground, say: this is art, and they'd eat it up.

I need to be an artist, apparently what I make in my mind is junk and to the progressives I'm the next Michelangelo.

I'll create a long brown mass to put in the art room for them to adore and make tons of money off it. I won't have the heart to tell them its a replica of what i produced on the toilet that morning.

^^Except you're old, broke, and creatively bankrupt. You spend you're time here, so nobody really gives a fuck what you think or do. Remember, your alone in this world. You failed to matter, and when you die alone, it will be as if you never were. Take comfort in that.

Should have known this was coming, coming from Merriam, Merriam thinks this is cutting edge art, omg. Like a child's cartoon book.
This council should not be in charge of picking art.
What you get when you try to please everyone.

Prove he didn't 11:27 I have to agree on Dave about this

You've summed up your entire lonely, trolling life very well. Be honest. This is the sort of thing you say to yourself in the mirror every morning right?

On the day when you don't spend that day abusing others anonymously because of your desperate loneliness and self-hatred, that will be a good day.

Take comfort in that. :)
