Public art, part II

This sculpture, "Stars and Stripes" by Kathleen Caricof of Loveland, Colo., has been installed in front of War Memorial Stadium. Landscaping is almost complete.

The Roy and Christine Sturgis Charitable and Educational Trust provided $500,000 for the work, which honors Arkansas veterans.

What's the thinking on this piece of public art, folks? Like it? Here's what Arkansas artists are probably thinking: Why does virtually every piece of sculpture installed by local movers and shakers in Little Rock come from the National Sculptors' Guild in Colorado instead of Little Rock or Arkansas? For the answer, ask City Director Dean Kumpuris.

 Note that the sculpture is set apart from the area around it. Picture it on the ground.
