From Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin lately has come a large number of submissions of painted cherries (because Door County has a lot of cherry orchards). I certainly agree that these are all unique, interesting, and worth exploring:
Problem being they are all temporary, as evidenced by the signage that accompanies them:
They are on display for auction until September 17, at which point they will be purchased and relocated. In some of the images you can see the base, which is not bolted down or secured in any way. Here’s a summary of the program, reiterating the September 17 date:
I have been rejecting these as temporary, since they very clearly are. But it seems not everyone has examined the signs (which, to be fair, are not present in all the images):
What can be done about this? The area also has a large number of decorated metal fish POIs, which I suspect were part of a prior year’s summer art display and are likely no longer present in the mapped pin locations.
