So much of art is sitting in a museum somewhere or on someone's wall where most of us might get to see it someday. Well here's a piece that's right out there where everybody can love it or hate it. Considering most of SRQ are retirees who remember what this image stands for I think its a good thing that it's paying us a visit (who knows I here there's a movement afoot to keep it here for good.) I'm sure there will be more talk and action on what is to be done with this work. Stay tuned!
