GISELDA 'BABE' LEHRER
"As an outsider, Tacoma is not hungry for art. Puyallup is. You go to Puyallup and they have so many opportunities there for artists to demonstrate what they are capable of doing. Art is making the downtown area look fabulous. But here, there are roadblocks. Believe me. Tacoma, really and truly, is not gang busters on having any art. They put up too many obstacles and it's very discouraging for people who want to contribute something to the city."
COMMISSIONER PAMELA SUNDELL
"When you have a sculpture on top of a building, usually it's . . . in a setting and belongs there. This, and I don't want to sound crass, but it's sort of plunked on [the roof]. The building has a very linear roof. There's no setting for the sculpture. I have trouble with that as an historic facade. This shape and style of building does not lend itself for this type of installation."

|The thing with that Tacomic is that it's too realistic. I ride the buses and anyone who rides the Portland Ave., McKinley Ave., and the Walmart Express to Spanaway to and from the Commerce St. Transit Center would recognize that the Tacomic proposal is not a composite goddess---Word from the Tacomic baby's father regarding all Commerce Goddesses, "Hit it, Hit it, Quit it."|

BTW, two of the most iconic successful statues in Washington State: the Lenin statue and the Fremont Troll would have never been approved by the Art Commission or the LPC.

|This is the funniest truest to life (tragic) Tacomic I have seen!
Can we send people like this back in time to Willendorf where they will be more apprciated?
