Chatter Bugs sculptures brighten Ocala campus

City workers recently installed Chatter Bugs and Whisper Tubes on the MLK First Responder campus on Northwest Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue in Ocala. Artist Adam Walls of Hope Mills, N.C., created the interactive steel-fabricated seating elements that are themed for community, partnership and communication. The idea behind the project is to foster fun communication and cooperation between people, using the sculptures as a medium. The artwork was installed through the City of Ocala Cultural Arts and Sciences Division in collaboration with the development of the MLK First Responder Campus.
