With the sun high and the blue sky void of clouds for the majority of the day, smitten couples celebrated their love with a stroll down the Carlsbad boardwalk. Others who found themselves single smiled with a hint of hope as they approached a small figure hovering over the sidewalk near the intersection of Pine Avenue and Carlsbad Boulevard. Equipped with a bow and arrow and surrounded by cones, Cupid celebrated, and encouraged, the act of falling in love.
…MIGHT BE THE ONE!”, a public art installation by Bryan Snyder, attempts to force interactions between strangers by altering the width of a frequented seaside path. Cupid, armed with a bow and arrow, hovers over the path ready to shoot potential lovers. The cones direct these walkers into oncoming pedestrian traffic encouraging eye contact, a smile and ultimately the blossoming of new love.
