Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?


    This is why I hate most modern public art. The impulse to embellish public spaces that once created this amazing tableau, today would be channeled into some kind of irregular surface of broken chunks of concrete with plastic dolls embedded in them, wrapped in concertina wire and given a fey title intended to be evocative.
     I suppose it's easier, and cheaper that way....
     That said, where is this thing? I'll state the obvious: it's not in Chicago, but somewhere else. Normally I'd harbor hopes that it being outside of Illinois would be enough to gain me a few hours. But I know my Hive, and my hunch is, you'll solve this before breakfast, alas.
     Place your guesses below. Winner gets one of my 2015 blog post posters. Good luck. Have fun.
