|Right there. In a traffic circle. Somewhere just south of Trinidad, Uruguay|
Weird metal animal sculptures! In the middle of the road! In the middle of Uruguay!
I am quite a fan of Roadside America. I don't roadtrip without first checking it out to see if there's anything interesting on (or not far off) my route. If there had been a Roadside Uruguay website, I would have checked it, too. Turns out I didn't need to! The best of Roadside Uruguay was right there on Ruta 3 just south of Trinidad, Uruguay.
And what is it?
|The sign says, "Zoologico Del Futuro"|
It was an awesome sight to behold. Below are my pictures of the various "zoo animals," posted without comment. Can you believe this place isn't listed in any of the Uruguay guidebooks I checked?
|Note the Chevrolet Corsa rental car. It is not one of art works|
|I think this is my favorite. I think it's a beaver and a saw|
|The artist's signature|
EDITED: I have edited this to correct the gender and prepositionizing of the name of the artistic installation. It is not "Zoologica Futura" as originally posted, but "Zooilogico Del Futuro," Zoo OF THE Future. And the late Martin Arregui (who died tragically young in his mid 40s) is indeed the creative genius behind this unique roadside art installation.
