  1. Love the idea really and i forward Sharon Terrell on her point of numbering houses. this would be a way of aspiring everyone of the type of art their imagination could draw out to. These sculptures would amaze and amuse all over the island. Another inclusive idea would be to add art sculptures of all those way back then old games using our same local artists and heros alike in a game of tiki toc, marbles, high jump, kite flying etc cause we all know what song artists can do so why not spin it up a notch and make it even more interesting, not forgetting art fountain sculptures to. This is definitely exciting and hope it comes to play so i can see it life is so short these days.
