The ball-like forms by Yvonne Domenge are quite nice. Why is there a guard rail surrounding "Wind Waves" but not the others? I'm not a fan of putting ropes/rails around public art. Why would they install one around "Wind Waves?"

Hey Matt,
There was some work in progress on the floor. You can see some minor construction work... That's way that particular piece had safety guard around it. Its removed now.
