field of visionHouston artist Bert Long’s Field of Vision, an array of sculptural eyeballs located next door the the Eldorado Ballroom at the corner of Elgin and Bastrop Streets, in Houston since 2008, suddenly disappeared over the weekend, to the alarm of Long’s many fans.

Never fear! Perched atop repurposed birdbath pedestals, Long’s piece always had the shabby, pensive feel of an abandoned backyard or ruined cemetary, but accumulated damage from vandals had gone too far. According  to Director Linda Shearer of Project Rowhouses, Field of Vision‘s sponsor, the battered piece is being de-installed and stored, with the intention of re-siting and restoring it.
