Do you like sculptures in public spaces?

Do you think sculptures add personality and a bit of culture to a park or other public space or do you think the money could be better spent?

Generally I like sculptures as they give an area personality. Sometimes they commemorate an event or are in memory of a person. I like the quirky ones and the bronze pigs in Rundle Mall in Adelaide are among my favourites. Occasionally I see something and wonder 'what is that all about?'
Cool. I like the scrap metal kangaroos in Brisbane near the mall and the giant hand at the law courts.
Oh! Jennifer, thought Law Courts had 'curly wave', if you're talking Brisbane.
And isn't 'hand' at junction Queen & Eagle Sts?

Yes I do (except for nudes) . I It adds to the ambiance of the area. Not everything has to be a matter of utility.

Yes, I like them. Not every sculpture is to my personal taste but they add a bit of interest.
I do like them in the public eye.

I don't like the price tag....some come with.

I'm an 'Art' lover, but it needs to be well worth the price some artists ask, for said sculpture.
Mostly really like them!
Loved the 'Pears' at Expo '88.
And the other figures from there, 'campfire scene' etc.
Yes, I quite like some sculptures, including nudes in a public place.

I find some of them very clever and I think they often enhance the area.

Many are quite lovely, interesting, decorative, fun. BUT, some are plain stipd and a monumental waste of everyone's money (especially Council rates!)
I like the big bird in Melbourne's Docklands precinct.
Yes, I love sculptures. Iíve seen the pigs in Rundle Mall, & the big bird at the Docklands, while passing in the trams & trains. If the kangaroos were in Brisbane in 3 or 4 years ago, I would have seem them also.
My uncle was a sculptor, & thereís a water fountain of his in a tiny park near Circular Quay, Sydney, NSW, 1 piece was stollen from an art gallery, which had been his house many years before, & sold for scrap metal. His daughters were NOT happy about that, I can tell you.. He also worked in wood, & stone. I think thereís 1 or 2 art the AGNSW in fact.
Every year we go & look at Sculpture by the Sea, at Bondi. I usually take about 110 photos! Itís a very slow walk around for my husband!!
I'm a big fan of art and sculptures in public spaces.

I love them. I also think the artist should leave a little plaque with their ideas or personal comments

Yes I do. I think they add character to parks and streets, and are a great taking point. I love Native American culture, and one of my favourites is the row of Native American totem poles outside the museum in Victoria, Canada.
sorry: should read great "talking" point.

depends what the subject is. do not like the abstract modern ones.
Yes, however there are always some that are not as one with their surroundings.

P.S; I've seen the pigs in the Rundle Mall while on a cruise, & I've seen the Big Bird at the Melbourne Docklands many times, as we visit Melbourne 4/5 times a year, to visit family. We've also seen the totem poles in Victoria Canada, while on our 1st Alaskan Cruise. i was looking at some last week, at the AGNSW.
