Tilted Arc by Richard Serra

Titled Arc was a sculpture made of curving wall of raw steel, 120 feet long and 12 feet high, that carved the space of the Federal Plaza New York, NY in half, and constructed in 1981, and after much debate dismantled in 1989. 

Currently reading Public Art: Theory, Practice and Populism and this art piece is being discussed. Should it have been dismantled? Artistic genius or public nuisance?
