The idea to build a giant sculpture on the waterfront seemed to drop from the sky, stirring up a flood of comment and emotion.
Now, it’s officially time for the public to weigh in. On Tuesday evening, local residents will get their first in-person chance to weigh in on the plan.
The sculpture’s designers planned it to be an iconic landmark to represent San Diego to the world for decades. But once the renderings became public, reaction was mixed. Detractors call the piece a view-blocking eyesore, drawing comparisons to bunny ears, a hood ornament or worse.
