Big Horse Head Outside Apt. Building

Giant horse head statue alongside a nondescript apartment building. A bench faces this sculpture so you can sit and wonder why it contains no verbiage about its artist, material(s), or date of creation.

[Kate Schwarz, 11/22/2015]

The 14-foot-high horse was carved from an 18-ton block of marble in 2006 by John Fisher. It's officially named "The Camden Horse."
