Inter-faith Sculpture Day in the City Park

The Atheist erects a huge monolith with nothing on it, the Agnostic erects a stunning question mark in bronze. The Jewish artist erects a Star of David, and a Christian erects a large cross while a Muslim artist makes an attractive Crescent. Which, if any, are offensive?

Which one(s) offend(s) the separation of Church and State if the City pays for them all?

Think about it. It makes a useful thought experiment in relation to our current situation.
