I found the article on the $40,000 piece of baked clay in downtown Cary quite interesting. I appreciate many forms of art, but this is not one of them. South Academy Street and Dry Avenue is the heart of Cary and deserves something better than this.
I am sure every great artist has painted a picture or created a sculpture only to realize that it did not reflect his or her true ability and chose to start over. This is what should have happened here. Like the story The Emperor's New Clothes, just because someone says its art doesnt make it so.
Spending another $23,000 on this baked clay is like putting lipstick on a pig. Its still a pig, and thats a lot of money for a tube of lipstick.
