Here are a few readers’ thoughts on the city of San Diego potentially de-installing 12 sculptures on Park Boulevard.

Regina Morin:

Yes, it’s time for those pieces of signpost art to come down. They have had their day.

Whatever outdoor art Balboa Park envisions, I hope that it will reflect the history of the site as a place of pride and of exhibitions. Pieces that reflect the 1915 California-Pacific exhibition or that denote Balboa Park as of cultural significance to the Pacific Rim would be wonderful.

Eveler Collins:

I’m writing in regards to the article about the de-installation of public art works such as “Night Visions” by Roberto Salas. “Night Visions” should absolutely be removed. It’s run its course by more than 13 years and over those years has deteriorated to a point where “Night Visions” has lost that connection between the driver and the road. Each time I pass Salas’ work it leaves me wondering what is it? And why is it there? It’s time to remove the pieces and give some new San Diego artists a chance to spruce up the city.
