We walked through the Fort Myers River District for the first time last weekend. The Davis Art Museum was closed on both days we were there but on the sidewalk in front of it are two rust colored columns with what looked like zillions of random letters cut out of the sides. The columns are actually meant to be light sculptures. Next time we will have to return to see them after dark.
The letters really aren't random. One column is the text of a legend told by the Caloosa Indians about the migration of Native Americans into Georgia and Florida. (The art museum stands on what used to be a Caloosa settlement.)
The sculptures were created by Jim Sanborn, a world famous artist who installed four encrypted cylinders at the CIA Headquarters near Washington DC. He presented them as a challenge to CIA employees and, to date, only three have been deciphered.
