This art in the park piece is titled 'Public Prayer Booth.' The work was created by Kansas City based artist Dylan Mortimer.

This is a great "in-your-face" reminder for those of us who have been forgetting to say our nightly prayers.

The unique booth allows sinners to kneel down and repent in the great outdoors.

Implications - As religion has been considered a "taboo" subject over the years, artists who touch upon religion in their work stand to spark interest from religious consumers as well as those who are more secular. Thus, it seems that using taboo or prohibited subjects in consumer messaging can be an effective method for capturing attention. Stats for Religious Street Art Trending: Older & Chilly
