Why hide the whale statue?

Reading where they plan to put Skip Wallen’s whale sculpture just amazed me. Who is going to see it, let alone appreciate it, at the location they are talking about under the bridge? It has always been my understanding that it would go where everyone could enjoy it and be in a place of prominence like Marine Park. I really hope they will reconsider moving it to somewhere closer to downtown. What about the new (state library) project location. I will not donate more money for it until they come up with a better place to put it.
