WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The city of West Lafayette is investing $80,000 in four new sculptures. And the creepy crawly concept is bugging some.
Some of the work by Pennsylvania-based artist Bill Secunda includes a 20-to 25-foot-tall steel sculpture of a praying mantis looking up at fireflies.
It will be placed at Happy Hollow Park's main entrance. Secunda will also create a cricket, luna moth and a dragonfly.
Those 6- to 10-foot-tall steel structures will sit at pedestrian entrances. But some parkgoers are not sure it's the best use of the city's money.
