Bottle-Cap Monument

It's not the most expressive bit of folk art ever, but this decorated shed in Stevens Point, Wisconsin,
is an example of the kind of vernacular creativity that comes at great effort but goes away quickly, almost casually.
The vintage is 1950s. The fate is uncertain, but the barn is said to be out of compliance with zoning rules and will be demolished
to make way for new construction. The bottle caps are attached to panels that could, in theory, be removed for reconstruction elsewhere.
