Santa Barbara has these painted bronze sculptures posed semi-realistically all over the block of State Street between Figueroa and Anapamu. There's a bronze guy washing the window of the Lewis & Clark gift shop, there's a bronze guy tying a little bronze girl's shoe on a bench. They're all kind of dated and horrible, but for the tourists it beats the hell out of taking another picture of a palm tree, I guess.
