Bad Goverment Mandated Art, Part II

We previously discussed this monstrosity, a six-figure eyesore on the City of Richmond police station that looks like a prop from a Fritz Lang movie. Our Local AM talk-radio Clearchannel affiliate has gathered together more government "sponsored" art.



A memorial to the great Confederate victory over the Giant-Locust People of Regulon 6



"And this, young hobbits, is where Gandalf and our uncle Bilbo turned the trolls to stone"



With safety in mind, the artist designed the holes just large enough for children to get their head stuck in them, so they'll be less likely they'll fall off and suffer multiple fractures.



Mightly Zeus doth ate generously from his divine ambrosia, and as Helios raced over the heavens two hours in length, he sat crouched over Mount Olympus with great agony. And as the god sounded with savage fury, out of his bowels fell the great legendary city of Copropolis.



Arborists flock to Richmond to observe the tridecennial mating cycle of North American Beech, the only time when the tree will bear its physiologically latent testes.



"Dammit! This doesn't look nearly as cool as it did on the cover of my 12th grade calculus textbook!"

Great slide show, but I think you want "Federation" rather than "Confederate" in the caption for the first picture. (The "artwork" definitely made me think of the United Federation of Planets insignia/communicator badge from the Picard-era Star Trek uniforms.)

I've lived in Richmond all my life and I've never seen any of these. Clearly, I've been blessed.
