Art in Everyday Places

Is there art that you see every day on your way to school or near your house? Sometimes there are works of art nearby that we can see any time. Here is a sculpture at an office building and shopping center. What kind of connection do you think people who work and shop there have to this piece of art? The sculpture is called “Helix.”
