The statues created by Seward Johnson I wrote about in my previous blog have come to Downtown Lodi. 

Because I'm willing to give any medium the benefit of doubt, I took a side trip to School Street to check out our latest public art offerings.

I happened upon the old man reading a newspaper, whilst (yeah, I said, "whilst") being licked by a pup, situated near The Dancing Fox. There, I took a few pictures of the dog and codger.

A couple of women approached to take their own photos of the art.

"Aren't these something," said one woman as we passed.

"Nope. Still creepy," I said.

    I'm with you, Marc. It's a mix of the painted clothing/skin(on some) and being on our level.

    Celebrate the Harvest–up on a big base. Not painted. Not creepy.
    Kids in front of Cold Stone–painted. In my personal space. Very creepy.
