Bad Photography Sunday: The Sculpture

Call me a Neanderthal, but I don't "get" a lot of contemporary art.

This is the new sculpture along the river common in Wilkes-Barre.  27 feet high.  Two tons of stainless steel. It's called "The Ribbon" and it's meant to be a positive inspiration for generations to come.

It's nice.

It doesn't fit.  It's a contemporary piece in a neighborhood of old buildings.  The size and scope are off.

Maybe, that's the point.  It's meant to be different, stand out, and be noticed.

Still, something is preventing me from loving it.
