Miami's Five Ugliest Public Art Eyesores

First, let us say this: We at Cultist count ourselves among the Miami art scene's biggest supporters. From its graffiti murals to the works in its galleries, Miami is, in our opinion, one hell of a beautiful place to live.

That being said, Miami is home to some ugly-ass art.

There's no accounting for taste where art is concerned, and here in the 305, our picturesque landscape is broken up by more than a few eyesore installations. These monumentally garish forms of "artistic" expression are placed strategically throughout the city -- some paid for with tax dollars, all incredibly pointless. Hey, at least there are a few fewer starving artists in the world, right?

Here are our city's top 5 worst artistic missteps.
