Regarding the lighthouse sculpture fracas, Jan 24. The question must be asked: Why did we need a sculpture of the iconic Lighthouse when the real thing is only a short distance away?
Did the commission by Corey Thomas actually cost only $55,000? What about the cost of transportation and installation.
The sculpture is a traffic hazard with people slowing down to look at the fish skeletons hanging from the installation and not observing the rules of the roundabout. Amazing that the committee of the Public Art Panel have not met since the sculpture was installed considering all the controversy. If the panel decide that the sculpture needs to be moved, who will pay the cost? Now that the sculpture is there, perhaps we all need to chill and learn to live with it.
