Please put stop to artistic litter
When is the city going to stop allowing anyone who calls themselves an “artist” plant their wasted efforts on city streets. We have the shapeless marble lump on West Street, the monolith at Giorgetti Park and now a huge yellow pretzel on Main Street which is not an abstraction, it’s a distraction. Worse, we’re told there’s more to come.
Note to the Chaffee: Just because it’s made in Vermont by a Vermonter does not qualify it as worthy of public display. I beg the Board of Aldermen to put a stop to this “artistic” litter by appointing a jury of qualified persons whose job it will be to decide if an offered work should be accepted or rejected for display on city-owned lands. The Chaffee group has just proved it is not up to the task.
