Art installation at Owen Park


Every year about this time, they have an exhibit of installation art in the parking lot at Owen Park. Last year it was colored pails. This year, it's this artful assemblage of concrete blocks with the ends (signficantly? symbolically?) broken off. Once again, park officials don't identify the artist, but whoever it was, they certainly made a strong and profound statement about contemporary American life. I'm just not sure what it is, exactly.

I just love what I'm now thinking of as your found art installation idea, thanks for sharing. I'll be on the lookout for such things in my own environment in the future!

As I found out later, they're planters for seedlings.
