A new 55-foot-tall statue of a nude woman in the San Francisco Bay Area has neighbors questioning what is appropriate for public art.
KPIX-TV reports that so far only a pair of legs has been raised at the new San Leandro tech campus, but some neighbors are asking if the sculpture, called "Truth Is Beauty," is appropriate.
The statue is of a nude woman reaching skyward in a dancer's pose. It made its debut at Burning Man three years ago.
Area resident Sally Wrye says she likes the statue, but thinks it is better suited for a museum, where people have the option to stop their children from seeing it.
City Manager Chris Zappata says generally supporters of the statue have vastly outnumbered detractors.
