This is on the main train station in Amsterdam. Train station. The U.S., with our addiction to oil (and apparently presidents who love to service their equally addicted to profits oil company pimps) could give a shit about our train stations. Oh sure, we’ve got the odd crap modern art adorning a few places (I’m excusing the MUNI metro stations in San Francisco, at least the few in the Financial District) but I believe the U.S. is too young to care as a country. We hate you naughty rail travel!
I don’t understand what’s up with the protective wire you might see on the sculpture. There is major construction going on in front of the station, but could it be vandal protection? Protecting pedestrians from falling sculpt?
