Giant public sculptures are my JAM

I’ve always been fascinated with oversized props and such- ones that make me feel like Thumbelina, or a member of The Borrowers family. These days, you can see things like this in corny roadside attractions on Route 66 or in small America that needed a way to get on the traveling map. For artists, though, this opens up a whole new opportunity to turn a bland public space into one that amazes and gives back to the community.
