Cupid’s Garden crosses many paths

I’ve driven by this sculpture countless times, but usually at breakneck speed coming down the hill on Wilson Boulevard in Arlington trying to make the light. Finally, I was walking nearby so I had to see it up close.

I still don’t know what to make of it.

Cupid’s Garden is a massive 25 feet high, 60 feet long stainless steel abstract by sculptor Christopher Gardner. It has 23 arrows coming from different directions (hence Cupid).

The shiny structure can be a pain to drivers with its sun reflection so be careful if walking over to it. Guess everyone is blind to the sculpture’s beauty.
