Tilted Arc: An Enemy of the State?

Ok, so its not the most aesthetically pleasing work of art to ever be displayed, but with the comments made by representatives of the government, one would think it was a bonafide enemy of America.

The Safety Division of the GSA even said the sculpture created “a blast wall effect- comparable to devices which are used to vent explosive forces. This one could vent an explosion both upward and on an angle toward both buildings."

The removal of Tilted Arc could have been handled much more gracefully without the government condemning the work of a great American artist.
