Newport Beach, California - Bad Dog
Bad Dog:

We don't devote much energy to temporary attractions, preferring those that will actually be there when you drive by. But we would be negligent in our hey-look-at-THAT duties if we didn't call attention to Bad Dog, a piece of public art that will only hang around until May 5, 2013.
