this was one of my favorite art installations this year. the hippo people never failed to draw a crowd and it was almost just as amusing to see people's reactions as it was the hippos. the snail was also very well done and it was pretty sweet to see it moving all over the place, even way over by the outdoor stage. and mirage (the white house thingy) is probably hands down the best shade installation we've ever had.
it feels like a big step in the right direction as the art has been lacking that extra something the past few years imo.
