Pictured above, Charlottesville monument to the 1st amendment, the freedom o’ speech wall (FOS).
I do not understand why the designers of this monument decided to use rough slate for a surface. The surface is terrible for any kind of work- text or illustration. The surface excels at grinding down pieces of chalk really quick, it is a gigantic stone hasp, it defeats rather than enables communication.
