Colorado Springs, Colorado: Octo-Maid: Metal Mermaid

"Iscariot" by Jackson Trace O'Connor is a giant rooftop mermaid built out of old galvanized light poles. Meant to be inspiring, but looks scary to us.

234 W. Colorado Ave., Colorado Springs, CO
Directions:
North side of Colorado Ave. just east of I-25. Turn north at the stoplight onto W. Colorado and take the ramp down to the parking area. Sculpture may be temporary.

As of 7/22/19 she is still there!

We thought Octo-Maid might be a temporary display, so it's nice to see her still entrancing passing traffic.

"Iscariot" by Jackson Trace O'Connor. Amazing Matrix sentinel-looking rooftop sculpture viewable from Colorado Avenue.

[El Lorro, 07/03/2018]

Built in 2008 and originally displayed in Boston, so it may be temporary in Colorado.
