Rapid City, South Dakota: Lawnmower Pile-Up (Gone)

Is it art, or just a pile of old lawnmowers made to look like art? Status changed many times (pile gone! pile back! pile gone!).

Outside of Willy's Saw Shop. Downtown, on the southbound side of US 16/Mt. Rushmore Rd. between Fulton and Clark Sts.
Pile reported gone. Again.

Lawnmower Pile-Up

No pile. The place is somewhat decorated with chainsaws and a small line of mowers. But nothing like the original description or picture.

Looks like he got rid of the pile, and has started a new one. Drove past there today, and I almost didn't recognize the place!

Lawnmower Pileup

Lawnmower Pileup is gone. The pileup at the front of the business on Mt Rushmore Road has been cleared of equipment. There is an orderly arrangement of lawnmowers and yard equipment for sale on the Clark Street side of the building (and no pileup around the other sides of the business). There is, however, a private residence behind the business, on Clark Street, with a giant U.S. flag mural painted on the roof.

Pile of Lawnmowers.

Lawnmower Pile-up

The lawnmower pile-up was back in action! Someone once posed the question: "Is this art, or just a pile of old lawnmowers made to look like art?"

They are outside Willy's lawnmower and chainsaw sales and service at the corner of Mt. Rushmore Rd. and Clark St.
