Elementary and middle school artists verify that the Fourth Plinth has become a curator’s game, not artistic excellence. Check out the more than 100o art ideas for the 4th Plinth by British children.

The artist has become an generic idea generator with the curators serving as the actual creative person in the process. I say put Kit Crane’s FEAR on the 4th Plinth and we would have something to look at.
Here are few selected that might be good for the plinth.
