Banging the drum for whimsical sculptures: If Red Wing, Puerto Vallarta, and NYC can do it, why not Northfield?

I’ve blogged about some whimsical sculptures that I’ve happened upon:

and how it would it be cool to see some in downtown Northfield.

Robbie and I were in Red Wing last weekend and I discovered this jester sculpture in their Levee Park downtown along the Mississippi River.

On our trip to NYC last month, we happened upon the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park. There were so many kids and adults climbing all over it and posing for photos, my daughter-in-law had to wait in line.

What would it take to get the artistic-oriented forces of Northfield behind something like this?
