Perched on the Mason Street Landing on the Riverwalk in Downtown Milwaukee, the art piece features Flux's signature metal work as a box, with a question mark captured inside the box's net. As a few on Twitter said when I sent out a photo of the piece it looks as though Riddler and Spiderman came together in way.
For me, the new piece seems to encourage us to not think outside the box, but inside of it. It's a good way to think as it helps us meet the needs of others.
I didn't reach out to Shamrowicz for comment yet, because I'd first like to know your thoughts on this new piece of public art.
Does it work? Inspire? Make you think? Or, just sit there?
Chime in, and the next time you're Downtown check it out.
