james o. and the shebbels of superior

Jamie Janos Photography -- James O. Janos, one of Brooklyn Centre's native sons, emailed us a heads up on the installation last Friday of some new public art. In our construction company years ago, somebody used to call these things "shebbels," and somehow this artwork made that word surface again:

Public Art Update: Excavation Bucket Installation Date: Friday August 3rd, 2007 After a strenuous Friday installation the "Excavation Buckets" where hoisted, leveled into placed and bolted down. Possibly the most complicated of the three Urban Lanterns for the Superior Avenue streetscape, the Excavation Buckets lead the ways for the unfolding of the next two installations. The second Urban Lantern in the series, "The Woven Dome", is targeted for a Wednesday-Friday of this week. And finally, the "Watering Tower" aimed for the following Wed-Fri. Once successfully installed the three Urban Lanterns will be lit simultanteously at a ceremony to be announced. For now, please review the beautiful photography by Jamie Janos of the days work.
