The sleepy eyed passers-by who stopped at the small pedestrian outcropping on 17th and Broadway this morning were befuddled. There was something going on there: this was for certain, as indicated by a number of journalists toting cameras and notepads gathering expectantly around a tall, mysterious object wrapped in silver cloth. It wasn’t until 11:05 am sharp that the auspicious moment’s star -- the artist Rob Pruitt -- stepped forward out of the crowd in a stylish pair of suede Clarks and a black sports coat and announced his delight at unveiling his first public work: The Andy Monument.
