Elements of sadness were associated with the recent dismantling of the artwork that has anchored the southeast corner of the courthouse block for six years.
Incongruous as the twisted metal might have looked to some against the backdrop of the stately courthouse, “Winter Storm” — like its peers scattered about the city since their 2006 installation during the Sculpture Invitational — had become a part of the community.
It had its detractors, but there were just as many, if not more, who appreciated it.
That can be said of each of the 14 sculptures that have formed a public outdoor art gallery since their installation. And just like the policies in place at all of the world’s outstanding museums, the community is changing the old exhibits, and there is hope that they will be replaced with new ones, bringing different perspectives for local residents and visitors to appreciate and sometimes criticize.
