I love a good art installation outdoors. In fact, I seek them out wherever we are. If we are traveling I always try to find the unique outdoor art in the places we visit. Whether it is the gum wall in Seattle, the decorated fiberglass peanuts in Dothan, Alabama or the quirky and weird Rancho Deluxe in Mason City, Iowa I am always on a quest.
Let’s go back to last week when I shared on It’s Just Life about the Blue Moon Beer Truck that has been stuck under an awning for a couple of months. You can read about that here. Just a couple of days after I published that post our local newspaper, The Transylvania Times, wrote an article about the very same thing. I am so cutting edge.
Today on a trip into town I passed the stuck truck once again and saw an addition to it. I circled back around later so I could stop and take a couple of shots for the blog. Of course I did. Because my readers deserve to be kept up to date on the latest news.
It’s difficult to read what is written on the hearts but some of them are empty. I suspect it is so others can fill them in. The ones that I could read said things like:
Thank you Nurses. Carry on Doctors.
To Elda, Love, Kevin
To Mary From the Gang (and then something I couldn’t decipher)
To Joyce. Love, Frank
So kudos to the local “artist” who stepped up to decorate the eyesore and create a fun art installation. Hopefully they were safe when they did it as there are cones and tape all around to keep people away. What’s next? Maybe shamrocks?
