Downtown Frederick will have a new piece of art after the city's aldermen approved an agreement to have a sculpture installed at Carroll Creek Linear Park.

The Downtown Frederick Partnership has been working with local artist Thomas Sterner to create an art and wayfaring sculpture that will be installed on the northeast entrance to the park on Market Street.

The aldermen approved the donation of the sculpture Thursday night.

The sculpture features water plants bending on their stalks in the breeze or toward the sunlight.

At least it isn't dinosaurs.


I hope it’s nude!


"The sculpture features water plants bending on their stalks in the breeze or toward the sunlight."


The vagrants and homeless people that congregate and encamp there will enjoy it.


Knowing the liberal utopia that Frederick has [unfortunately] become, that's probably why they're putting it there.


I can’t imagine someone so churlish that he would begrudge anyone’s enjoyment of a sculpture, regardless of their housing status.


Who is begrudging anyone’s enjoyment of a sculpture?


I give up. Who?
