Call me a philistine, but this sculpture has always seemed to me to lack any serious creative or evocative essence. It's a little striking because it's large and imposing, but that's all the emotion I can get from it on a good day, when I try.
It's not bad. The area has plenty of bad sculpture. Web Link Web Link
It's just not good. Palo Alto can keep it as far as I'm concerned. I'd rather have a solar panel on a pole in its place, or a windmill hooked in to the local electric grid supplying power.

I'm quite comfortable in giving Mtn View's second-hand art to the culturally challenged.

Solar panels on a pole do resemble metal, angular, modern-art. As expensive as solar cells are, they are cheaper than the "art" pieces strewn about the Bay Area. Maybe we could get an NEA grant to put up some solar art.
