Rather than a particular project, I want to suggest a general philosophy. Public Art should have a fun factor. It should either make you laugh or deliver a sense of awed wonder (Tom Otterness, Christo, Jeff Koons), or you should be able to play on it (Tom Otterness' Playground). If you cannot provide fun, then at least include a place to sit down, preferably with some shade.

On the Brian Lehrer Show we're talking about public art, and we want to know what public art project you'd propose. Make it simple, make it over-the-top. Make it realistic, or completely impossible! Note: These aren't actual pitches, just a way to share our ideas.
