2017 Miscellany #3 w/Superman

 Main Library Cleveland is celebrating a home town boy.
Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster of Glenville (then around E. 105th, a primarily Jewish neighborhood in Cleveland) created Superman, and he (as many people's parents came from elsewhere). The planet Krypton could symbolise an old country that no longer exists for Clark Kent, and one he could not return to.
This is a prototype of a planned stainless steel (man of steel) statue for a future Siegel and Shuster plaza.

May 2nd. Uptown Brass Quintet. Broadway United Methodist. John Williams Throne Room Theme Star Wars.
This will be the last year of the Chinese Zodiac public art project. A veterinary clinic had these two previous statues.
Whiskey Island/Wendy Park, with football stadium (L), railroad bridge (R).
a white crowned sparrow, a throw's distance from the birdy sign
