This weekend Denise and I took her daughter Michelle back to IU after a couple of days in Speedway. I was waxing nostalgic as we were driving around campus when I spotted a glittery brain statue on the south side of Third Street. I said, “I don’t remember that brain being there.”
Apparently there is a town-wide art installation, inspired by the Chicago Cow Parade, that features 22 brain statues decorated in a variety of ways. You can read about it here. I thought this was way cool, especially when we were stumbling around Fountain Square Mall on the square looking for Yarns Unlimited and came around a corner. “There’s another brain,” I said. Then “It’s a knitted one!”
I think it made Michelle’s day to hear someone get that excited about a knitted brain.
