    Take a tip from the bronze animal sculptures at the zoo, and install a big bronze half-immersed Quillback Carpsucker, which is native to the downtown river pool right there. Kids could climb around on it.

    There are kind of a lot of bronze carp sculptures there already – we might have that covered.

    How about a giant shopping cart?

    Unfortunately, no matter what design is proposed, there will always be “It looks like a ___”

    I like the 3 sails thing, I just hope it’s tall enough to see it from all the tree’s going by the city.

    The latest version of the tower looks too much like the work of the sculptor Rita McBride.

    Wow, nice dig! That certainly looks much more appealing (visually) than the proposed sculpture for the Scioto Mile. It’s simple and doesn’t resemble a damn cooling tower. I’m a little disappointed on how the space inside the sculpture was treated…seems like it could have been much more interesting than an unpaved pile of dirt (maybe it’s just not done yet).

    What City is that sculpture in?

    It has to be Europe. Notice the nice boulevard between the highway lanes. Americans prefer their raw concrete median barricades, slightly cracked, aged, and decorated with reflectors :)

    Looks like it’s in Munich: http://vimeo.com/32972116

    I actually really like that design. Leave it to Europe to do the nuclear tower right. I would hate for the artist to replicate but in this case, I’d be happy with pretty much the same design and scale, only add an interactive feature and lights for night.

    I remember this from some survey course I took. Pretty cool.

    It will be great to have more public art in Columbus.
