There is a lot to see on that site. A lot of it is about the design and execution of the project. However, what I was thinking when I posted this link was how the artist "engaged" the community to participate in the "process of community" building bridges between its different groups and components.
Here is a link to Bill Cochran's philosophy of the bridge.
I don't think the clove lakes bridge needs paint. It's patina reflects many years of people getting together on the bridge or in the nearby woods. I can still remember a toga party I attended at the boat house. Lots of us ended up leaning on the bridge.
