Tracing the Fore No More

I wanted to get a shot of this Tracing the Fore art installation before it is taken out. There has been discussion over the last few years about this being the least-liked public art in Portland. The artist that created it will be coming back to town in a few weeks, according to this article, to discuss possible changes to the piece. I'm not a fan of it personally, but I'm not sure what would work best here. It will remain a median strip between a (nice cobblestone) road, which limits its use a bit. Any ideas, readers?

And a somewhat panoramic view of yesterday's photo, I think you can click it for a larger version.

  1. Hmm. It doesn't do much for me. I get the idea of what they were trying to accomplish, but the execution doesn't do the concept justice.
