A Quest Quest

Hey Portlanders!

Want to have a little fun for the holidays? Very little fun?

Every morning I walk by the ghastly marble abomination that is the sculpture Quest. It’s the one in front of Standard Insurance, and is known to Portlanders as “Three Groins in a Fountain” or “Naked Mormons”. It has been described as the worst piece of public sculpture anywhere, and it’s ours.

So I had this delightful thought. Holiday pasties. Wouldn’t sparkly, red and green pasties look just darling on the prim bosoms of those sadly naked figures? It’s one of those ideas I would like to see happen, but don’t really have the inclination (or the balls, or the pasties), to accomplish myself. But you can make my dream a reality. C’mon. Pasties on the nakies. I shall trumpet your triumph long and loud should it be done.

    By the by, if you accomplish this thing, please take a picture and send it to me, in case I miss it.

    I have passed it along, although don’t know if it’ll do any good. If I were there, I’d totally help with this: this is exactly my kind of project.

    Have you thought about posting it at tribe.net?

  3. Cat says:

    Oh yes. I may get a taker.

    I shall wear pasties myself in honor of your wishes.

    E-mail to follow.

    Maybe pictures.

    You shouldn’t give me ideas like that 😉

    Doesn’t the “Expose Yourself to Art” statue deserve pasties, too?
