Public Art 

What do you think about our new public art? Are you one of the people angry we didn’t spend the $330,000 on Predators tickets?
What do you think about our new public art? Are you one of the people angry we didn’t spend the $330,000 on Predators tickets? Are you one of the surprising number of Nashville hobbyist arc-welders who says you could have built it yourself? Do you think “Ghost Ballet for the East Bank Machineworks” is a conspiracy involving Alice Aycock, Opryland and the mothballed remains of the Wabash Cannonball? Is this the best we can do? If we don’t bitch up a storm about “Ghost Ballet,” you can just bet there will be more roller coaster art to follow. (Anybody seen the old Screamin’ Delta Demon lately?) If we’re not careful, the east bank of the Cumberland could end up looking like Millennium Park in Chicago. What a Frank Gehry nightmare that would be. No thanks—Centennial Park and Greek Revival suit us just fine.
