Christian Moeller Sculpture at Walnut Creek Library

I wonder if Moeller or the City of Walnut Creek chose the subject's "shushing" pose.  While I respect Moeller's ability to create visually striking art, I was disappointed to see the final product--an image that reinforces the stereotype of librarians as "bespectacled, bun-sporting ladies who shush patrons."
