It's almost as ugly as the other "sculture" at Tollgate Shopping Center.

Have to agree...that hideous arched gate on Tollgate near the equestrian center makes a perfect trio of ugly eyesores that do nothing but detract from the woodland park that is the Ma and Pa. And why must they be orange nearly the only color nearly never found in nature thereby assuring no matter what time of year these "artworks" will stand out like a sore thumb. Sure hope they didn't spend a bunch of money.

I suppose that the definition of sculpture is in the eye of the beholder. I'm hoping it doesn't become a graffitti tagged bilboard . . . .
