Once again, artist Robert Indiana's metal sculpture EAT sits atop the roof of the Farnsworth Art Museum. The 20-foot-high lighted piece was installed May 9. The sculpture has nearly 400 flashing LED lights that will illuminate Rockland Main Street throughout the summer.

Close your eyes when you drive down Main St. and you won't have to look at it. :-)

I agree with Peggy Oliver.  A complete waste of time and money as far as I'm concerned.

Glad to see it back, yet what would you expect from someone's whose front window looks like this?
