ART DOWN: Laying on its side with legs up, this sculpture has been looking like large-scale roadkill. Now the orange bird will "coming soon to the Springs Preserve, where the real roadrunners and coyotes live" posted artist Alisha Kerlin on her Facebook feed. The large-scale roadrunners have been, for the most part, homeless after a debut in “Roadrunners That Won’t Run Far” at Clark County Rotunda Gallery in 2014. (The flock of four is actually down to three. The pink one met a premature demise). “Las Vegas has a specific identify where unrelated things sit next to each other,” Kerlin said during the exhibition. “It’s hard to represent Las Vegas with one object.”
