without trying to offend Simon Frank in any way, I'm a little perplexed at this decision given the mandate from the focus group desiring to see something mixed, welcoming and helping to make Locke a destination.

Perhaps I'm not envisioning this properly, but if it's just sidewalk plaques, I don't see that adding much to life on Locke.

A few cool, hip sculptures in various spots on the street would have been neat. Heck, even the nature piece with animal sculptures along street poles is at least visually eye-catching without being over the top like holey poley.

Regardless, I'm a huge fan of public art and don't want to sound critical. Hamilton has a serious lack of public art and I will gladly welcome any addition to the fold regardless of how large or small it may be. That's the beauty of public art - it's interpreted differently by everyone.

Congrats to Simon.
