Fountain or Sculpture?

Near the Embarcadero in San Francisco is the Vaillancourt Fountain. Designed by Québécois artist Armand Vaillancourt, the water to the fountain has been turned off due to the severe drought in California. Is this fountain still considered a work of art despite the lack of its main component, water? You tell me.
