Nude Person This Morning at Phoenix's "Release the Fear" Sculpture

Categories: Art?

We stopped at a  red light at Central a few hours ago, ready to turn left onto Roosevelt. People who live or work in downtown Phoenix know the quirky little park at that busy intersection.

Central and Roosevelt, 9 a.m.

​ It's the location of that magnificent 24-foot-tall metal sculpture of a "man" raising his arms to the skies.

The work of local artist Robert John Miley was installed circa 2005, and is entitled "Release the Fear."

It was created in part from 8,000 pounds of metal melted down from weapons used in myriad violent acts around the state of Arizona (law enforcement "donated" the guns, etc.).

f you can make out the person standing in repose next to the base of the sculpture, you will see what we saw from our car--a naked person of indeterminate gender.

It was a surreal moment, for sure.

Passersby stopped in their tracks, trying to keep their cool, but not altogether succeeding.

Other than being stark naked at a busy city intersection, the person wasn't bothering anyone.

We noted that our nude friend was reading the sculpture's "mission statement" as we made the turn onto Roosevelt.

The artist's goal: "To release the paralyzing effect of violence in our communities by promoting healthy resolution of conflict utilyzing the healing power of education through art."

We called the Phoenix cops when we got into the office to see what may have happened after we left the area--no reply as of yet.

 Yea  Daytona Beach Florida spring break 1970 to 1978 but not todays cunts. a young man in 2012 is lucky to ever see naked slut flesh or get laid in todays spring break female world. nowdays female barbies are all show and no go. I loved the old days best back when a women was a horny slut starving for hard all night cock on MDA, Crank, Acid , Mescaline or Magic Mushrooms. Fuck this new breed of hop hop rap loving young punks today they are as boring and lame as milk toast and wonder white bread. they are all a bunch of teenyboppers now days who are as fake as it can get.

 You need to see a mental therapist and you need anger management classes sir. the rap music you listen to is making you a very hostile unhappy and violent young man. get help before its to late and you end up in prison for murder.

  HELLS ANGELS do not ever listen to hip hop or nigger rap . if you did that around the brothers you would get beat up real bad and kicked out of the club and sent on down the line.

 If you hate old farts so much why do you hang around with old hells angels like 72 year old sonny barger? a real hells angels member does not go around insulating older bike riding brothers ever. thats a show of disrespect and that means you are not a 81 member or even a biker. most 81 members are over 50 years old now. you sound like a jelous new times young punk with a big yap that needs to be punched untill all your white yuppie teeth are busted out and all you are left with is bloody gums.

 Hey old faggot maggot fucktard. Well here's some bad news for you, you shit bag--I'm clean cut short haired Hells Angels. I'm new school and listen to rap music. I hate classics and musicals. The kind that old farts your age listen to. Your days are long gone and is nothing more than a far off dream, if your clouded memory can remember anything at. I'm a clean cut biker of Hells Angels and I love the chicks today better than in your time. Your Vietnam loving days are nothing more than pages in the history books.

I ride with pride. A clean cut short haired Hells Angels.
