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
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 . . .
