Now it’s not just the real, live selfie-takers you’ll have to step around when passing through Sugar Land’s town square.
A new statue erected in the plaza captures what a selfie looks like off-screen — and people don’t like it. The bronze sculpture shows 2 young-looking women, forever crouched mid-selfie and, according to KXAN, is part of a series of pieces that depict “common activities in the plaza.”
Although many social media users posted about their disappointment in how taxpayers’ money was being allocated, the statues were actually donated by a resident, Mashable reports.
What do you think? Are selfies better left to their one, filtered medium? Or is the piece “good art” because it, as Refinery 29 says, it “drives public conversation”?
