Re: Can't miss this art

There is a piece similar to this outside of the Legionof Honor art museum in San Francisco. It is extremely unappropriate for the site, in which every other element is in a classical or beauxs-arts style. The piece sits as the centerpiece of an outdoor prommenade symetrical with the building's central axis. There is gorgeous overlooks of natural scenic beuaty everywhere, and then this attention-getting bright orange-red piece made of steel beams, which visually harmonizes with absolutely nothing within five miles of it.

And then there is the aesthetic of steel beams, welded into pretzel shapes, but I don't want to offend anyone...
