Only in California: Solyndra now a ’$528 million art project
Somehow I think art that expensive just isn’t good for the soul. It sounds like something a 1 percenter would indulge.
The work of experimental architecture is called the SOL Grotto — and Republicans are making fun of it as a symbol of a $528 million federal boondoggle, calling it the most expensive art project ever built.The newly opened installation owes its 1,368 distinctive glass rods, and its name, to Solyndra — the failed solar company that received a hefty sum in federal loans before going bankrupt and becoming a favorite target for critics of President Barack Obama’s energy policy.
