Agoraphobia?

    “If these are so beautiful, why doesn’t Mayor Daley put them in his own front yard?” asks a woman who lives near Magdalena Abakanowicz' "Agora."

    The author of "Another eyesore in Chicago?" says,
    "(with) vulgar faces spitting in Millennium Park, to the recently installed “Agora” in Grant Park, Chicago now has more dreadful public art than just about any city in the United States."
    ...

    Public sculpture gave up any consideration of beauty over a generation ago. Magdalena Abakanowicz says “the figures are hollowed out and missing arms and heads because they are negatives of a body, like bark fallen off a tree.” What’s beautiful about that?"

    My posts on the Abakanowicz Agora are here.
