Title: Unknown, Davis © '89
Location: Behind the Hotel Congress (311 E. Congress Ave.)
Details: Metal, rib-like sculpture. The only markings on it are
"Davis © 89."
This piece is sort of a surprise, situated where it is near the Hotel
Congress and the newly-renovated train station. It's actually a pale
turquoise color, the photo notwithstanding. To me it appears
plant-like, perhaps a climbing vine of some description. I like the
sculpture and the rather quirky way it's placed on its corner, with the
saguaro in close juxtaposition. Nature and art, in communication.
Don't worry, the sky near this sculpture isn't purple and grainy. Nor
are the saguaros florescent green. But this sculpture is an enigma, a
bit out of the way, no marker, no title, just sitting there near the
Hotel Congress parking lot as though someone forgot to take it with him
when checking out and didn't want to pay for postage to have it mailed
back with the pair of socks that he left in the closet of Room 216.
