The abstract “Metamorphosis” piece resembled a spaceship to 9-year-old Taryn Hillerud of Eagan.
“It’s weird — weird in a good way,” she said. “Three-two-one, blastoff!”
The abstract nature of the piece will allow visitors to interpret it however they like, said Julie Andersen, recreation supervisor for the Eagan Art House.
“If you see circles or triangles or wings or frames or whatever, that’s such a delight for the viewer to be able to see something and be able to interpret it the way they want to interpret it,” Andersen said.
Residents expressed differing opinions on where the piece should go, but city leaders believed the art installation should take place at Patrick Eagan Park, said Parks and Recreation Director Juli Seydell Johnson.
“The art house has been quietly doing good work for a number of years,” Seydell Johnson said. “It will bring more attention to this site and more visibility.”
