Oh those crazy social justice warriors. They can't create, so they destroy. They can't persuade, so they destroy. When normal people read about these people: Houston man charged with trying to plant bomb at Confederate statue in Hermann Park, it's hard to stay calm. Hopefully, law enforcement agencies can keep us and the statues safe from those mad bombers.
Meanwhile, if they want to bomb something, they should go for the eyesores. This one, for example. “Personage with Birds," the ugly sculpture in downtown Houston.
Here's the ways it's described in Art & Entertainment: 15 things YOU GOTTA SEE in Houston:
Joan Miro Sculpture
600 Travis Street (In Front of the JP Morgan Chase Tower)
During construction of the JP Morgan Chase Tower, an art committee commissioned Joan Miro to create this sculpture for the skyscraper’s plaza. The story, that in the 80’s Miro came to Houston to pick up a check before creating it. Miro allegedly asked if they had any particular art themes in mind & someone on the committee responded “Anything but an anatomically correct male nude.” He was 90yrs old @ the time and world famous for surrealist sculptures loaded w/sexual symbolism. He was a Catalan Spanish artist who made Paris his home and ran w/Picasso & his crowd. This piece is a male stick figure of an artist with pallets in the primary colors and at least 5 stories high. I don’t believe he titled it, but the Morgan/Chase site calls it “Personage with Birds.
