You might know that many public government building have artwork in them. But it's not your everyday picture from the department store or a vase of flowers. The government likes to do things right, even if what considers right is just their own opinion.
Take this piece, for instance.
It's called Wall of Light Cubed 2 (no, I'm not sure why) and was created by Sean Scully. Those blocks are granite. Size 63" x 102.4" x 70.9". About the size of a small car.
Now, normally I wouldn't care if the Government put a pile of rocks in every building. Productivity might rise, for all we know. But it seems the Government (which means you and I, if you're an American) paid $1,000,000 for this thing. I mean, it is a nice pile of rocks—but it's not that nice. Maybe if a couple of them were chrome plated. We Americans like things chrome plated, you know.
You know, I got some rocks in my back yard that ought to be worth at least 15 grand. I'll even give you a discount if you haul them away. I think there's a rusty bicycle out there, too. You can have that for free...
