Scary eyes. If one doesn't follow their orders, they will probably stare extra-accusingly the next day.

Effective, 'making-you-think' art is a great thing.

Like the billboard in The Great Gatsby!

Nice.

I love civic art- it says a lot about a city when they are willing to fund projects like that. I also think that murals are not unlike chalk paintings and sand castles, which is part of their charm. It's not art for the ages- it's for right now. I wonder if the ancients felt that way about them, too?

My In Laws used to be quite involved with that kind of thing (which is how I know a bit about Glendale's sculptures). They are surprisingly progressive in that respect.

Sometimes I wish I were a better photographer, so I could do a book of Venice's ephemeral art.
