Aggravation de l'Espace

This abstract steel sculpture was created by French sculptor Jean Boutellis in 1980 and donated to the city by the Robert Taft family.  The sculpture is poised on three “leg like” prongs and is often referred to as “Cootie” because of similarities to the board game character.  It was originally installed in 1983 in front of City Hall but because of complaints from pedestrians that it was in the way, it was moved in 1984 to its current location in the middle of Central Parkway where Central Parkway meets Plum Street.
