Art Work For CdA Sewer Plant?

It’s putting a pretty face on the, uh, ugly. Not that the ever-changing, ever-updating Coeur d’Alene Wastewater Treatment Plant is unattractive from an aesthetic sense, it’s just that the job it’s designed to do is just so, well, unglamorous. Never mind that though. The plant is the spot for the city’s next public art piece. “It’s kind of neat,” said Fred Ogram, Arts Commission chairman, on the call to artists soliciting a hands-on, interpretive art piece that should support the facility’s functions while highlighting the nearby natural environment and resources/Tom Hasslinger, CdA Press. More here. (Photo courtesy: city of Coeur d'Alene)

Question: You be the artist. What would an appropriate art work look like for the Coeur d'Alene wastewater plant?
