This sculpture is titled "Vermonica." It was created in 1993 by artist Sheila Klein. Named for the intersection where the artwork is located, the artist who initiated this project herself calls it a "drive-in museum of street lighting."[Clare Haggarty, 01/07/2013]
Smack in the middle of a mini-mall parking lot is a bizarre collection of about two-dozen street lights of various sizes, shapes and designs. I'm sure the presence of the Department of Street Lighting one block to the east has something to do with it.[Philip Deslippe, 03/05/2007]
