What Is This?

It's nice to have a garden in the midst of all the tall office buildings in downtown Cleveland. I really enjoy going to the library garden on my lunch hour and reading. I love the peacefulness there, the comfortable chairs, the trees that provide just enough shade and the gurgling water. Sometimes I even doze off and get a short cat nap in.

On break one day when I walked over to the garden I saw people painting five oblong pyramids that had shingles on two sides and wood on the other. What puzzles me is why these roof shaped things were put in there. There are five of them spread around the garden, each a different color. At first I thought they were going to be storage areas for something but there are no doors. I suppose people could sit on top of them, but they do not look comfortable to sit on.

I see no purpose for these so I assume it is meant to be art. Personally, I prefer the open space. To me, these look out of place and give the garden a cluttered appearance.

What do you think of modern art? Do you think these look good in the garden? Am I missing something here?

I like the colors but they do look a little out of place I think...My first thought was "flood"...but I suppose it could have been much different. I'm glad you have a nice park to go to on your lunch break. That's good :) :) Greetings from Oregon, Heather :)

Hmmm.. a takeoff on Planet of the Apes?

I prefer the grassy, open areas, too.

To each his/her own, but I'm with you. I would much prefer the wide open space than these.

Have a terrific day. :)

Those are certainly odd. If you find out what they are for, you'll have to let us know!
