Pretty Public Art At ‘Poop Plant’

A coupla Berry Pickers snapped this photo of public art at the wastewater treatment plant (aka Sharon Culbreth's “poop plant”) during a walk on the news stretch of Centennial Trail along the Spokane River and Education Corridor. One Berry Picker writes: “The sculptures are awesome and educational. What a cool idea!” If you haven't had the chance to view the new infrastructure for the Education Corridor, you should drive or ride your bike over to it. Impressive.

Thoughts?

Dolling Up Lake City’s ‘Poop Plant’

“These are the real workers at the plant,” said Allen Dodge at his shop in Coeur d'Alene recently about the welded steel sculptures he created for display at the wastewater treatment plant in Coeur d'Alene. Dodge made the sculptures in the shape of organisms including stalked ciliate, filamentous bacteria and nematode. The artwork will be installed in July. (Kathy Plonka SR photo)

Question: Die-hard City Hall critic Sharon Culbreth dissed the public art at the “poop plant” in May during a seminar. The “poop plant,” of course, is now very public as a result of the new infrastructure into the future Education Corridor. Do you see a public good in spending public money to doll up a “poop plant”?
