Maybe it’s just me, but “Steel Helmets” by Anthony Caponi in Caponi Art Park has a certain grotesque quality to it. There’s nothing inherently grotesque about it–except maybe metal shafts being driven through helmets–but it’s what the empty helmets imply: Death. Suddenly what should be a clinical sculpture now seems like a profound anti-war statement.
