This is an actual sculpture/mural on the side of one our remodeled high schools.  Quite a controversy over the placement of objects.

From left to right, is suppose to be a Drama Mask, hands applauding, a spilling cup of paint, a cello, two paint brushes, and a blob of paint.  When a student noticed some “letters” in the work, quite a hub-bub occurred.   The non-local artist swears nothing was intentional.  It still proudly glares at all patrons, students, parents, teachers and administrators as they enter the “Fine Arts” wing to the high school.  I dunno……  you decide……..

    I had to stare at it for a while but I do now definitely see the SEX created by the paint spill, tuning keys of the cello and those paint brushes. I could take either side of the debate. I see how it could have been innocent on the part of the artist or intentional. Either way, it’s pretty great…

    How big is this? And what city is the mural in?
