Title: Iron Hinge?, Unknown
Location: South side of RIver Road between Campbell and First
Details: Iron and Wood
Okay, so my partner really
doesn't care for abstract art! I'll have to admit, though, that this
piece isn't particularly my cup of tea, either. Some of the sculptures
that fall into the public art category are decidedly different; this
would be one of those pieces. However, it would be pretty boring if all
public art looked alike, wouldn't it? And, since (presumably) one of
the things artists want to do is give the public some insight into
their imaginations, it stands to reason that some pieces are going to
be very different, indeed. Eye of the beholder, and all that!
Another installation of big iron pieces, but to be different, this one
has the addition of a log!
Modeled after a typical 6-foot tall rusty door hinge, it appears that
the artist decided that a large hinge, by itself, wasn't that
interesting. Hence, presumably, the inclusion of a log. Not just any log, but a log stuck right through the hinge.
Wooo! And that's it, other than the hinge is open about 30 degrees, which may or may not mean something.
