So the Madison Square Park Conservatory is promoting an "art exhibit' where a bunch of random, life size statues are scattered all over the Flatiron district, many of which are on the edge of buildings 15 to 30 stories up.
Am I the only one that sees hundreds of pointless 911 calls to the city switchboard over the next couple of weeks? If anyone is in the area go outside and look up, it really looks like someone is ready to jump.
Was thinking the same thing when I heard about this. The report said that the police had to put out a release informing the public of what was going on. My thing is this...if you have to look up that far to see it (and prolly can't see it all that well), HTF can you appreciate the art???
Art lost a lot of integrity when it became a profitable profession. Now many artists care more about making the front page than their own philosophies. While this artist's explanation of his work sounds interesting, he undoubtedly knew that he was going to draw a lot of hysteria by putting statues of people on the edges of rooftops, which of course captures more press and eventually more $$$.

And what was the deal with that array of floodlights or whatever they were last year, all positioned in an arc? I walk through that park every morning and I honestly don't know what I'll see from one day to the next.
