Art's All In How You See It

Created with none of your tax dollars, and available for viewing only by those who walk the remote byways of rural Illinois, Agrarian Shipwreck symbolizes the futility of small dirt farms, the heartbreak of shattered dreams of sharecroppers, and the misery of starving and poorly clothed farm kids.  An anonymous sculptor created this masterpiece by utilizing an abandoned cultivator, a broken mowing machine, and a farm waif's rusty tricycle.

Or maybe someone cleaned out the machine shed. Admission is free!

I'd put my money on "cleaned out the shed", because that's how most farms around here look. Throw in an old tractor, combine, etc and you get a BIG sculpture.

I love finding these iron graveyards. The old homes I see are usually depressing, but fascinating.
