Art, in many localities, is given a budget by city hall. Artists are commissioned to produce public art for public consumption. Public art springs up in parks, in downtown open spaces near city halls, by busy streets and intersections. The art is most often not controversial and makes people think about something other than themselves.

This modest sculpture, of kids climbing a rock feature, is close to shops by the business edge of the Fountain Hills park.

The boys in this sculpture want to climb.The girl cradles her baby sister and admires a flower.

Boys and girls were never made to be the same.

We all love to climb, but we don’t all have to climb the same mountains.

There are plenty of mountains I can’t scale but does that make me less important than you?

Do women really want to put their men in the back seat of the car?
