One of the first pieces to make me start to think about public art in Nashville is this bit of whimsy. I don’t know the people who live at 705 Setliff, but I do know they like public art, at least in their front yard. I wonder about the neighbors. Certainly, it makes directions easy. “We’re two doors down from the books with the birds and the Newton’s cradle. What? Oh, you’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it.”

Located at 705 Setliff Place, just north of Eastland, a couple blocks west of Rosepepper and Jenni’s and Ugly Muggs. Some street parking on Setliff, easier if you’re willing to walk a bit. This is a private home, so be respectful.
