Non-billboard showcases the sky

I love this!

I'm sure I'm not the only one frequently annoyed by billboards cluttering the view.  Non Sign II stands along the U.S.-Canada border in Blaine, Washington and promotes nothing but the beauty of the sky. It was installed in 2010.

Made entirely of blackened steel rods, it was commissioned by the U.S. government’s General Services Administration and created by Lead Pencil Studio in Seattle. Here's a close-up view showing the tiny metal rods that compose the 'mist'.

 What a wonderful piece of art!
