  1. Just want to clarify that the dedication is at 1:00 p.m. with a reception starting at 2:00 at Busboys. The invitation is tough to read.

  2. I can only hope my tax dollars went to pay for this horrible monstrousities. What a disgrace.

    I actually like the public artwork. I can understand how everyone has differing tastes, but I don’t understand the animosity that some in our neighborhood have shown to this public art. Lighten up a little, folks.

    public art is paid for through funds from real estate developers, not the general tax coffers.

    I think it’s wonderful that the city & developer incorporated public art into the project. While I wish “Lift Off” was a different color (or several different colors, for that matter), I would much rather have it than have nothing installed. It’s really grown on me since the installation & I think it adds a great dynamic to the space/neighborhood. I also like the art on the side of the building, though (again) I had hoped for a splash of orange in it somewhere.

    Just my 2 cents, as a City Vista resident. Bravo! :)
