Perched on the Mason Street Landing on the Riverwalk in Downtown Milwaukee, the art piece features Flux's signature metal work as a box, with a question mark captured inside the box's net. As a few on Twitter said when I sent out a photo of the piece it looks as though¬†Riddler and Spiderman came together in way. ¬†
For me, the new piece seems to encourage us to not think outside the box, but inside of it. ¬†It's a good way to think as it helps us meet the needs of others. ¬†
I didn't reach out to¬†Shamrowicz for comment yet, because I'd first like to know your thoughts on this new piece of public art. ¬†
Does it work? ¬†Inspire? ¬†Make you think? ¬†Or, just sit there? ¬†
Chime in, and the next time you're Downtown check it out. ¬†
I L-O-V-E this sculpture. To the point i had to go online and find out where it came from & who designed it. I prefer to think it calls to question whether thinking inside the box is always the place you'll find the answer. Finally some classy contemporary art downtown. Kudos to the designer!
