Relocate the Rainbow


Regarding the news that the Rainbow Gate is being restored: How much will that cost? I bet the fence and scaffolding and covering alone are already costing a bunch that could be better used for other art-supporting efforts. I love art and sculpture, but that piece never seemed successful in what it purports to be. Maybe in part that’s due to its unfortunate location where no pedestrians ever come by except for some of the homeless population who have other things to worry about than the condition of a mediocre work of art. But driving by at that busy intersection doesn’t allow for the right meditative mood that one would need to at least try to enjoy its effect. The beautiful mountain panorama behind it is magnificent enough in itself and doesn’t need to be framed. It would work better in some architectural setting that needs enhancement, such as the Court House gardens or De La Guerra Plaza. Can it be relocated as part of its refurbishment?
