Public Art eats small child!

Notice the small boy that appears in the Pelican’s stomach.

Saturday morning at Fire Station #7 on Memorial Avenue a “Meet The Artist” event was held as the last installment of Public Art was admired by this young fellow who lives on Grandin Road. Now, I know you don’t believe he has been swallowed by this Pelican made out of copper, steel, brass and aluminum but the piece is titled “Second Chances.” The Pelican’s mouth moves in the wind while the fish try to escape with a second chance at life. The artist is Eldon Slick from Tucson, Arizona. The art will be on display until April 2010. Pictured with the artist is City Manager, Darlene Burcham.
