Downtown Lakeland Sculpture Has Some Residents Upset

Downtown Lakeland sculpture is turning heads                                 

LAKELAND, Fla. (WTSP) -- A new sculpture in downtown Lakeland is turning heads. One person on Facebook called it a “piece of crap eyesore.”

The sculpture depicts the iconic “leg lamp” from the 1983 Christmas movie A Christmas Story. Georgia artist Joni Younkins-Herzog appropriately named it “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out.”

The city of Lakeland posted a picture of the sculpture to its Facebook page, and it has gotten quite a reaction.  While some enjoy it and have no issue with it, many are calling it trash, disgusting, and one mother went as far as to say "Horrible example you are setting for children"
