Last week I was blamed for what is sitting in the green space [“Gables] art piece]. I said it is art work. He said, “It looks like a stranded dead carp bones on riverbank!” He said that the boards are split and soaking up water, at most lasting 5 years. He said, cover it up in white plastic and rotate colored lights inside at night to make it at least attractive for a while and I thought it might work! I have enclosed photos of artists presentation and what we have now! He knew me from the effort I have made for the city to make it attractive for visitors statewide thru tourism in Des Moines. Our city is growing and we need the best, not junk in my opinion!
