Road Art - Tree Sculptures in Galveston

Galveston's city council decided to rebuild the city artistically after the devastation from hurricane Ike in 2008. They gathered up few local artists and told them to go out and carve beautiful sculptures on the stumps of the trees that were damaged during the storm. The result is that there are several streets in the city now that sport these sculptures in front of homes. This is the latest tourist attraction, walking tours, art tours etc. If I were residing in these streets I don't know if I'd be pleased or angry about so many people walking across the streets. It is good for the city in terms of tourist revenue but what about my privacy....
