Culture on the Cheap
Spotted Under The Pulaski Bridge: Seven Cents
When I saw this (which hails from Clay Street) from a distance I thought to myself:
Gee, someone has made a piece of art with resin and affixed it to this sign post. Neat!
Then I figured out what it was: a remnant of a Lucite be-glittered toilet seat. Not that this diminishes this find in any way, mind you: I found its placement rather appropriate. It does, however, beg the question as to where the rest of it went. If I had to hazard a guess I’d say it was smashed off in the hopes of recovering said pennies. God only knows stranger things have happened here.
