APPLETON (NBC 26) -- The Municipal Services Committee has recommended the removal of a sculpture on East College Avenue in Appleton.

The artwork is called The Collective. It’s a large head made up of small metal faces.

Some love the piece, but others want it removed.

"Anywhere we put the piece, there will be people who like it, and people who don't like it,” said Alex Schultz of Sculpture Valley. “So, at what point do we say enough is enough. This space is good enough for it, and this one isn't, so I just don't know how you can make that determination and ask us to try and do that, it's just a real challenge for us to try and do that.”

Now, the decision moves to the city's Common Council. They take up the issue on January 22nd.
