The Blue Baby has found a home. For better or worse. The ‘Hatched Baby’ statue was installed yesterday morning on the south lawn of La Crosse’s City Hall. As you probably know, the 9-foot tall sculpture, which was loaned to us by an artist in Freidberg, Germany, shows a baby with blue skin coming out of an egg. The City says it was only supposed to be stored until being sent back to Germany, but they decided to put it on display for people to enjoy. Lucky us.
While we’re certainly not going to criticize anyone’s idea of art, we just find this…creepy. Another thought: How is this ok, but the Big Indian in Riverside Park isn’t? We guess blue babies just aren’t offended. You tell us!
