Officials to Debate Downtown Sculpture's Future

By  | 

ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) -- Officials in a southern Michigan city are deciding what to do with a downtown sculpture that some residents want removed because they think it's too racy.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports that the "Blue Human Condition" has been covered with a tarp while its future is being debated.

The sculpture was placed Monday near city offices and depicts seven figures in standing and seated positions.

It was created by Mark Chatterley and intended to be part of Adrian's Art Discovery public art program. Chatterley told the newspaper in an email that in part "there is nothing sexual about the piece."

City administrator Shane Horn said a "decision on what route" will be taken is expected next week. Adrian is about 60 miles southwest of Detroit.
