Today I went down to the courthouse on Elgin Street to take another look at the rockhead sculpture from yesterday. I thought I’d find out the name of it, and the name of the sculptor, and the date.
Bloggers tend to be sloppy about that sort of thing. Real journalists would never get away with running a photograph of a sculpture they didn’t even know the name of.
I would have just photographed the plaque, but there wasn’t any plaque. I couldn’t find out anything by googling it either.
It’s true that the rockhead theme is unfortunate, and the resemblance to a bunch of Pez dispensers is ridiculous, but I kind of like it anyway. Maybe if I could find the plaque I’d find out what it’s supposed to represent. Here’s another picture of it.
XUP has dug up the info: It’s called “Due Process,” and it was created by Bruce Garner in 1988. Here is Garner’s website: Bruce Garner
The dandelion was growing next to the rockheads. Then I saw this man with a snaketie and called it a day.
