Public Art?

Some well-intentioned public art group has placed what looks like gigantic stone bull's testicles in Verdi Square. This piece is so bad, and so wrong for the spot, it was actually improved by this huge advertising balloon, part of Fox TV's pitch to media buyers attending this week's previews of the new TV season - affectionately known in the industry as "The Upfronts."

Perhaps it's a conceptual art work and a different part of the bull''s anatomy will appear each week. One can only hope for the tail next time.
