Art, in many localities, is given a budget by city hall. Artists are commissioned to produce public art for public consumption. Public art springs up in parks, in downtown open spaces near city halls, by busy streets and intersections. The art is most often not controversial and makes people think about something other than themselves.

This modest sculpture, of kids climbing a rock feature, is close to a  shops around the edge of the Fountain Hills park.

The boys in the sculpture want to climb.The girl cradles her baby sister and admires a flower.

Boys and girls were never made the same.

We all love to climb, but we don’t all climb for the tops of the same mountains.
