After the meeting

The United States is a nation of do-it-yourself. It may be the pioneer spirit. The large number of people that grew up rural – where it was between difficult and impossible to find exact parts and the people that understood them.

But we do little things on our own all the time. Think back to the last church or community meeting you attended. Chairs in a roomy basement or gym. An announcement near the end to the effect  “would a few volunteers please stay and stack the chairs”

In some organizations this works like a well oiled machine. You could almost tell which kids were in Scouts by their efficient, don’t need to tell me twice, behavior.

In the public sculpture below the artist has taken the phrase “stack the chairs” literally and large.
