It's a giant, red ball. How could you not love it? Artist Kurt Perschke explains how the RedBall Project got started:

RedBall began as a requested commission by Arts in Transit, an award winning public art bi-state agency based in St. Louis. I was asked to choose among a series of sites and propose a temporary work. After being drawn to an unlikely underpass lacking the glamour of other possibilities I worked through a series of ideas, trying to figure out how to make evident my pull to this particular place. In a late night sketching session, after many failures and in a moment of frustration to realize the compressed potential of the site, I jammed a gigantic ball under the bridge to make myself laugh. Excited, intrigued, and having nothing else I liked, I showed the sketch to my project manager the next day over ice cream at Crown Candy. She laughed too, and thus began the RedBall Project.
