write a 3-4 sentence statement arguing in favor of preserving or removing the Tilted Arc sculpture from the Federal Plaza. Explain the rationale for your choice while referencing the features of the work

Imagine you are an art critic who was invited to testify in the public hearing
concerning the location of Richard Serra’s Tilted Arc in the Federal Plaza in NYC. You
are familiar with the controversy surrounding this sculpture and you need to decide
whether it is best for this work to be removed or maintained in its existing location. As
you deliberate, consider both the artistic relevance of the Tilted Arc and the complaints of
a number of office workers who frequent the plaza on a regular basis and find the work
unpleasant. Keep in mind that the work is the result of a General Service Administration
commission and that the estimated cost of its removal is $35.000. From the perspective
of an art critic, write a 3-4 sentence statement arguing in favor of preserving or removing
the Tilted Arc sculpture from the Federal Plaza. Explain the rationale for your choice
while referencing the features of the work
