The [Cleveland] Politician: A Toy

Via the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission Weblog, WCPN reported last Friday that the whimsical "Politician" sculpture will be moving to a new location in the not-so-distant future.
"The Politician: A Toy" has become one of Cleveland's more recognizable roadside icons since its installation at Chester Avenue and East 66th Street in early 1996. The forty-foot, satire-laden mechanical sculpture was designed by artist Billie Lawless and financed under Cleveland Public Theatre with contributions from private sources and placed on private property (thus avoiding opposition from then-Mayor Michael White and roadblocks from city departments).
With the current site for sale, a non-profit group is negotiating its move to another home - a "more pedestrian-friendly location." Which, of course, begs the question: Where should "The Politician" be relocated? (more to come shortly)
