"Critic's Corner" Perches High Above Springfield Ave.

Critic's Corner
by Judd Nelson & Craig Snyder (Wayzata, MN)
From L to R:  David Wilcoxen (Board President, PAL), Judd Nelson (Artist), Mike Hosier (Site Sponsor), Craig Snyder (Artist), James Barham (Director, PAL Board).

The Public Art League is proud to welcome Critic's Corner by Judd Nelson and Craig Snyder (Wayzata, MN) to Champaign.  The sculpture has been installed on the north side of Springfield Ave. between Neil St. and the railroad viaduct.

The sculpture is constructed of welded plate steel painted bright orange and stands high over the street and sidewalk.  The artists indicate that the piece is a mixture of sculptural styles that meld together.  Also, the piece has been known to be a popular perch for local birds.

A big thanks go out to Mike and Connie Hosier for the Site Sponsorship of this piece.
