It disciplined me to work on such a public artwork in a small town. The local paper put an ad in the community events section every single week. The hours were 10 am until 6 pm every Thursday, changing to 1-4 pm on the few Thursdays I had to be away and one of the regulars took the project over. Always, someone took over and the work continued. I think that is remarkable and important.
