Blue duck can stay, thousands of other items in man's yard must go, judge rules [View all]

ST JOHNS – A blue plastic duck.

That’s all that Clinton County District Court Judge Michael Clarizio says can be left of an outdoor art installation made from thousands of found objects at the home of a Bath Township artist.

Even as he praised the work of artist Robert Park, Clarizio gave him 45 days to remove the items along a pathway on his wooded lot. The duck was the only object that didn’t fit the definition of junk under a township’s ordinance, which prohibits outdoor storage of “cast-off" and other items.

“I have to follow what the law says, not what my heart says,” Clarizio said. The judge called Park a “talented artist” and said he found Park’s art installation “interesting.”

Park plans to appeal, and his attorney, William Metros, said they would press Bath Township officials to back off.

I wonder if some Republicans complained because they don't like blue?
