No birds in Newhall

Sure hoping we will have other options besides the birds for the traffic circle sculpture coming to Old Town Main Street area.

Seems to me the birds "fit" over at the water feature near Bridgeport, but we need something Western ... how about a statue of William S. Hart or a horse rearing? ... something in keeping with the history of the area.

Please, no flying birds of shiny silver. Even the giant bear by the mall would be better.

Editor’s note: "Birds of Valencia" was not proposed for the Newhall roundabout.

As the April 13 story "Arts Commission names six semifinalists for Newhall roundabout art project" notes, "Birds of Valencia" is an example of artist Douwe Blumberg’s previous work. Blumberg was the highest-scoring of six artists selected as semifinalists to design the sculpture for the Newhall roundabout.

City leaders have said the art work should have a Western theme.
