Have you ever seen a cross, flowers, and stuffed animals etc., on the side of the road where a life was lost-or in front of a house (or other location)? A wall plaque is the same thing, only in a high traffic, public place it's more tidy. The family DID want it taken down, that's why it was taken down. You just called YOURSELF an idiot for reading NUVO-or how else would you know about the NUVO story. A lot of people have a Republican or two in their family, it happens. Also, wipe your mouth-you are spewing brown, stinky stuff from it.
INsensitive is what comes to mind when reading the in-print version of this story and the by-line; "Silva's sculpture near IUPUI takes a fall."
1; A public 'Thank You' should be given to those responsible for making the decision to take it down.
2; A donation drive should be going on to help pay for the removal AND re-installation of the art piece to another location.
3; A permanent memorial plaque should be mounted on the street level wall where the young Mr. Somerville fell to his death and should include a reminder, of sorts, not to mess around on any balconies as the reality can be death.
I love the city of Indianapolis and the direction it is going in.
It would be great if someday, Indy was to art, as Nashville (Tn.) is to country music.
In this unusual situation, the real story is not that we are hurting in the art department (which we are not). Instead, we are gaining in respect, civility, and morals- all of which helps make living life with other humans more rewarding, precious, and beautiful. That's an art too!
Thank You Nuvo, for the article. More folks need to know about TPS. The Mayor's help is important in this, and I hope he does the right thing by the kids,teachers,parents,and community that rely on The Project School as an important part of their lives. Nowhere in this country does a city leader get 100 percent approval by 100 percent of the people,on 100 percent of their decisions made. But I feel 100 percent sure that a plan put in place for saving the school is better than closing it.
Great Things have happened, are happening, and will be happening at The Earth House Collective! It has many layers, just peel them back and you will find something for you. In the rare case you don't-why not make it happen there?
