Sculptures were installed on Preston and West Wellie this past fall. What would the City do to protect them from winter damage?
I suggested adding 2×6 curb of boards about a foot out from the sculpture to protect it from errant sidewalk plows. Instead, the City opted for yellow fibreglass poles to alert snow crews not to “back stop” their plows (ie, don’t bang into these things, they are expensive!).
Note to Randall: the yellow poles are not part of the sculptures, and were not added to confuse you or make them less understandable. The Preston BIA still has interpretive leaflets that walk you by all fifteen pieces, the artist cj fleury tells of the people in the story behind each piece, making them come alive.
