Rushing Around Auburn - Saturday Snapshots

On a recent walk through the "downtown" area of the small town where I live (population approximately 70,000) I came across this series of public art. Seems like everybody's in a hurry!
On the corner of Main and A Street ...

By the Sunbreak Cafe

Next to City Hall ...
On roller skates and unicycles ...
At the train station ...
Where are they all going and what's the rush?
Update -- I found this info online: Paul Sorey's "Catch the Train Running Figures" are eleven stainless steel figures along A St and within the Auburn Transit Station plaza that represent the multitude and diversity of people who make their way (running, so they won't miss the train or bus!) to Auburn Transit Station.

    1. Me, too! I'd seen several of these sculptures around town but until I got out of my car and walked around, I didn't realize there were so many.
