Our own ArtPrize Installation

After 9 years, our local ArtPrize has become a worldwide event with hundreds of thousands of dollars given in prize money each year. I've never even contemplated entering a piece, partly because I'm not really an artist and also because the process of entering would add more complications to our already complicated lives. But this year we decided 10 days ago (the very week that ArtPrize began) to erect our own installation at Carlton Gardens, which gets more drive-by traffic than almost any other venue.

The title is "Life Cycles and Circles." We've added our names and a number (0000001) and include a disclaimer: unofficial, unauthorized, illegal, perhaps criminal. That should be enough to get us off the hook, should the art police come after us.
