‘It’s Chaos, Be Kind’
A community-funded monument to kindness in the face of life's difficulties.
This 20-foot-tall obelisk stands in the middle of a small community park surrounded by central Texas farmland. Why is it here? Where did it come from? and… What is it doing?
On the back side, a short description of its origin tells us that it was created by Austin-based artist, Matthew Johnson, and inspired by the words of the late author Michelle McNamara. Funds for the limestone monument were raised via a Kickstarter campaign in 2018.
But there it is nonetheless, defiantly standing tall and magnificent, insisting that visitors consider its simple, yet encouraging, message: “It’s Chaos, Be Kind!”
