In Evansville, Indiana, 30 decorated crosses will soon be erected in public spaces, right on the city’s downtown riverfront. But don’t worry, they’re really sculptures, so it’s all in the name of art, as well as for the good of the people:
“We’re doing it on behalf of the community. We will feel like it will bring people to the riverfront who wouldn’t otherwise come.”
That comment is courtesy of Roger Lehman, the West Side Christian Church member who successfully requested permission from Evansville’s Board of Public Works.
The polyethylene crosses — which will be temporary, going up this August 4th for about two weeks — are going to be decorated by children attending a Bible camp at the church.
