IF YOU NEED WHITE BRICKS, PLEASE GO TO HOME DEPOT & NOT OUR LOBBY


Memo sent to staff at Florida's Fish & Wildlife Institute

From:
Mitchell, Michelle
Sent: Thursday, July 02, 2009 3:35 PM
To: FWRI-ALL
Subject: White Bricks in Lobby.

FYI- The white bricks in the main lobby are actually art work. . .

Back when the JUMRF was built it was required by state statues that a portion of our appropriations for construction be used for art.

In the past, people have mistaken the arty bricks for regular old bricks and used them for door stops or book ends in their office.

Three of the arty bricks are currently lost. If anyone happens to find them please return them to the other bricks.

Thank you!

Michelle

I was designed and built for beauty, to please the human eye and warm and inspire the human soul - not for utility - and I would like now to be returned to my fellows on display...but I would like also to thank sincerely those who skirted me away for use as a doorstop and bookend for awhile, for they have allowed me to experience the great dignity that is inherent in the most ordinary of useful labor.

What a lazy assed piece of art. Seriously? Some bricks that were left over stacked in a little pile?
