Hint: we don’t think it spins.
UPDATE (June 30, 2017): Meet ‘Autoeater,’ The Replacement For Midtown’s Spinning Rock
Crews Friday began installation on a new sculpture on the corner of 10th and Peachtree Streets where the Midtown Spinning Rock (A.K.A. “Rockspinner”) used to be situated.
The new installation, a white pick-up truck being swallowed whole by a slab of marble that looks like Jabba the Hutt, doesn’t seem like it spins.
But parts of it might have in the past.
Rockspinner, a temporary art installation that was on loan, was returned in April after first debuting in November 2013.
“We have a new and intriguing art piece coming this summer to the corner of Peachtree Street and 10th Street,” Midtown Alliance, the organization responsible for the installation, said earlier this year.
Midtown Alliance did not immediately return What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.
