A few cities have done public art projects involving artist-painted fiberglas animals,
e.g. cows, dogs, moose, pigs, bulls, and um, ears of corn,
so Baltimore got in on it with with its own Crabtown Project.
I started seeing them around and assumed i didn't make the cut,
but as it turns out the Little Italy Restaurant Association wants to see this thing on their corner (Stiles & Albemarle),
like, right by where they do the open-air movie series all summer, so hell yeah!
