Lawn Art and Plop Art Photos

I took a few photos of public sculpture this weekend. None of these wow me, personally, but I like the fact that they exist. I'd rather have them where they are than not have them there.

Anyone who has ever had coffee at the Art League has probably noticed this abstract piece in front of apartments at the corner of Montrose and Bomar.

Here is another view.

Does anyone know who the artist is or what the sculpture is called?

Up in Stude Park is an enormous metal sculpture that probably everyone driving west from Downtown on I-10 has seen.

It is called Houston and it's by an artist named Mac Whitney.

Finally, at the corner of  Bayland and Morrison up in the Heights is a piece of metal lawn art.

It's kind of a curving broom-like structure on a tripod with a spring around its base.

If anyone knows what this is called or who the artist is, please let me know!
