Godzilla of Public Art

What do you think of this Main Art Piece for London’s Olympics? Is it ART or an EYESORE? I LOVE THE OLYMPICS! And can’t WAIT for the Summer Games!

Check it out!

The Orbit tower in London, a tall, twisting, red steel structure next to Olympic Stadium that adds a touch of modernity to the city’s skyline, debuted Friday and is being drubbed in the British press, with critics calling it the “Eye-Ful Tower” and “the Godzilla of public art.”

Designed by award-winning artist Anish Kapoor, the tower stands 377 feet — 22 feet higher than the Statue of Liberty. It features a 455-step stairway, two observation decks and a restaurant that offers 20-mile views of the capital city’s skyline. Visitors can pay $24 to visit the landmark during the Games. It will reopen to the public on Easter 2014.
