Seriously, sculpture? Laramie, WY Real Estate.

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose art is that way, too.  So it was with an open mind that I accompanied our children on a field trip to Laramie's latest installment of Sculpture, A Wyoming Invitational,  in June of 2008. 

Seriously?!  Was this a practical joke?  The artist, a man from New York state, took this work quite seriously.  He seemed annoyed by the children who didn't get the deeper meaning of it and could only see it as a giant earth worm.  Me, all I can say is "Bless their little hearts" as NOT one of them made a single reference as to what else this looks like!

"Over and Under"

Huh?

I think the real title of this was "Over and Under".  Thankfully, there was a plan to take it down late the following summer and they did.  I always wondered what the people driving by on the interstate must have thought if they noticed it!

Fortunately, this "work of art" was taken down after the winter and the good reputation of the city of Laramie restored to those who only traveled by without stopping.

Brenda, I admit, earthworm was not what came to my mind. More something like what I have to bag up when I walk the dog.

Oh my gosh, "over and under" is not what comes to mind, is it?!

We have a couple of those 'unique' sculptures here in Charlotte too and I remember thinking they were just rings of rusty metal - and they're still there but, they've grown on us!

Hope you have a great weekend, Brenda!

Brenda Whitman, Live in Laramie Real Estate - As I started to read, I thought to myself... I wonder how long it will take before it's covered in graffiti or destroyed. By the time I got the very end, I was relieved that it was removed. 

What was he thinking????
