Public Art

My home town sponsors a huge Arts fest every year, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars, which they donate to different charities. Each year, in addition, they donate a piece of art to the community. I love this place. This is what I saw on the BeachWalk, about two miles of public path along the beachfront, punctuated with public art.
