Skyscraper art in Westport?
A Baltimore developer wants to put a 236-foot-tall "illuminated metal sculpture" in Westport, colleague Ed Gunts reports.
To put Pat Turner's proposal into perspective: It would reach as high as his Silo Point condo tower and, he says, would be one of the tallest works of art in the country.
"We want the sculpture to be the center of attention of the project," he told the [city's Public Art Commission]. "We're redesigning the project around the sculpture. It does for Baltimore what the Arch does in St. Louis. It would become a symbol of the region."
What do you think the symbol of the region is now, in terms of either public art or architecture? Could we use something new?
