"Simply an important and impressive piece of public art. Although it is being presented inside an indoor gallery, it plays an important mission to our cultural community and civic sense of sensibilities. The work is really delightful and dark, intelligent and playful. Most importantly, she challenges the norms of public space in a way that is very important to citizen’s sense of ownership and what is public property. It really creates the opportunity for the public to really engage in the world around them."
