Ok, it's dark out when I go to work, but I do catch a glimpse of a few things. Most recently, the absence of a thing.
Do you remember the auto shop parking lot in old town, on the corner of 5th and Glisan? It's kitty-corner across from the back of the Greyhound bus terminal. Directly across from a homeless shelter. I believe that it has changed owners and apparently the new owners are not *art* lovers. Or, they needed the space.
Missing from the lot is a large (and by large I mean about 15 to 20 feet tall) metal sculpture of a hand. Reaching skyward, was it beseeching the heavens for alms? Was it showing us the way? Come to think of it, what the hell shape was it in? My first thought was that it was reaching upwards, then I thought no, it was a fist. Now I think it might have been an 'a-ok'. Frustratingly, I can't find a picture of it on the interwebs. Why don't one of you faithful readers refresh my memory... one of the two of you ought to remember! Please comment!
