Sculpture Garden on South Main

I love the sculpture garden that sprouted in the past week at South Main and Talbot.

It's a happy visual surprise.

I love the art and I love its setting, in a corner lot that's neither hyper-manicured nor abandoned. It has a beautiful old Tulip Poplar on the Talbot side, and bushes and small trees on the non-Main sides, to give it definition. The setting feels organically Memphis.

Congratulations to the students who put it together. They have added real economic value to South Main. The value should come back to them.

The people are making the David Byrne/Talking Heads universal gesture for the song Once in a Lifetime: "How did I get here?"

You've had some really great pictures lately of your adventures around Memphis!
