“Should the Tilted Arc have been removed” with what you believe to be the strongest evidence to back your opinion.

Richard Serra’s sculpture, Tilted Arc, was removed and destroyed eight years after it was created. The work was heavily criticized by those who worked nearby. Many objected to its enormous size, which forced them to walk around it when they wanted to cross the plaza. Part of Serra’s intention, however, was to make people more aware of their surroundings as they walked past the sculpture. Some objected to the raw steel wall because its rust-like surface was often covered with graffiti and could not be completely cleaned. Others thought the sculpture might attract rats or terrorists.
