You wonder why some of us fiscal conservative types want to reduce or eliminate public art funding?
This "art" is being placed next to the Whitemud Drive-Quesnell Bridge on-ramp--an area that was newly reconstructed to add lanes to the bridge and freeway. This is also an area of much natural beauty--the North Saskatchewan River, the forests, Whitemud Creek Park, the Equine Centre, hiking and bike trails, and just across Fox Drive is a small farm.
Yep. Our River Valley has amazing natural beauty. But when I think of it, I ask, "Nevermind trees or shrubs. Who needs that? You know what we need? $500k+ in shiny steel ball mounds. That'll blend in perfectly!"
Like, seriously. Who approved this crap?
