Alternate Sculpture for Gabreski Roundabout in Westhampton Beach

In his most recent blog at thegreenmonkeys.blogspot.com, Dan’s Papers artist Michael Paraskevas presented some alternatives to Donald Baechler’s giant and controversial “Walking Figure” sculpture, which was installed recently at the traffic circle in Westhampton’s new Hamptons Business District near Gabreski Airport.

Here’s what he had to say…

Well, here are a few of my suggestions for a new sculpture at the Gabreski Airport. I don’t suppose anyone bothered to ask any local artists. The current piece of crap standing there is a piece of junk.

I don’t know what anyone at the airport or in Westhampton was thinking when they picked what is there now.
