Ottawa should have more things like this around town. They're so interesting

This reminds me of an essay I handed in to my art teacher in grade 11titled, Pubic Art*. More of that could also add a little exitement to Ottawa.

*Yes, it was a typo.

As long as it's not like the awful public art on the grounds of the US embassy.

I've seen that Chicago fountain in person, and it's really wicked!

Milan: Yeah, I agree. That weird "sculpture" thing is just...weird. I don't get it at all...

How about the new graffiti mural going up behind Boushey's? Does that count?

We have a big spider!

An art piece incorporating a public fountain would be a great addition to Minto Park. It would fit nicely in the middle of park (in the circle with the benches around it) and yet be far enough away from the Ottawa Women’s Monument so as not to distract from it.

XUP - yes, I love our spider, she is wonderful
