Dressing up cell towers as a "work of art"

They've been hidden in church steeples and disguised as trees. Now the city of Oceanside outside San Diego is trying to turn a 65-foot cellular-relay tower, seen by 350,000 motorists daily, into a "work of art." reports Core77.

"The city's Arts Commission is hoping for approval to cover the tower in a "netlike swirl of material around the pole [with] dozens of foam seabirds in and around the netting."

Pictures won't be available ntil the Oceanside Planning Commission gives the go-ahead to the project."
