Default Public art ideas for school?

hello, so i need an idea to draw out and design my own unique piece of 'public art' for school and i'd like it to be something simple and easy to make and draw. It should preferably be about society or politics or the state of the economy but basically something that stands out and is meaning full and nice to look at at the same time. Any ideas to help me out please

Don't do it. Tell your teacher there will be no money for public art under the coalition government, and so the exercise is pointless.

An overflowing recycling bin. All the bottles in it are alcohol. All the paper in it is credit card bills. Call it "The State of the Nation".

A sculpture of a library with a "Closing Down Sale" sign on the front. Call it "The Big Society".

Go to the Lake District and hammer a 'For Sale' sign into the ground.
