It's not that bad. Leave it to Hogville to be so negative about a piece of art that a company has at its entrance.

It will grow on you. Eugene (the artist) told me that it is an amalgam of several wild pigs found in Ireland and throughout Europe. In its final form, computerized LED lights will adorn various portions of its body.

It may end up being the target of hurled paint, not unlike the SAE lions back in the '80's.

I was just thinking a coat of paint might do wonders... or maybe a nice rug underneath.  You know, just to kinda tie things together.

The hurlers better be adorned in Ninja gear😅, for there are several ip cameras pointed at the structure.

“Art”.

My thought exactly.  It will do what it was supposed to do, and that is to give that business lots of coverage.  Never heard of the business and don't know what they do, but I would guess the exposure is good for them.   A business throwing up a cartoonish statue of their logo is hard for me to call art though.

Art is subjective. You don't have to like it for it to be art. That's not how art works. It IS art.

Yep, we can call anything art if we want to.  Not disagreeing with that.  It's just not what I call art.

A few miles farther down 62 a business just put up a giant chicken this month.  I'm sure some think of it as art too.

I can drop a deuce in the toilet and call it art.

I can listen to Kendrick Lamar and call it art.

Both are forms of dung.

I can slap a few pieces of scrap metal together and label it as art.

It's literally a piece that was sculpted/created for the purpose of being art, viewed by people driving by etc. Don't have to like it though. I'm still waiting until it's completely finished and I can see it in person before I drink haterade on it. Definitely interesting.
