SUN-LOVING MERMAID   (can be almost any size, but preferably life size!)

Everyone needs sunshine and joy and whimsy. We should frolic often and run and dance with abandon. It’s good for us. An urban setting, where concrete and power lines prevail, longs for -- and deserves -- an unexpected burst of yellow that just might make you crack a smile.

While this is absolutely a photograph, we want to think outside the box on the presentation and installation. Sandwich it between plexiglass perhaps? Imagine if it was almost see-through or double sided, allowing viewers to see it from either side.

So coming or going on Henderson, how can you not notice a sun-loving mermaid in your midst?
