ARDMORE, Okla. -- An Ardmore artist is bringing his own flair to the downtown Depot District.

Robert Smartt's "Meet the Day" sculpture, depicting a whimsical chimney sweep, is poised atop the building at 7 West Broadway Street. Smartt created the work using coils from an old air conditioner.

"It's relevant to me because of being in the present and not living in the past, or looking toward tomorrow too much to be distracted from the day," the artist said.

Smartt's 10-foot sculpture may soon make its way to ground level so people can get a closer look at it.
