this past weekend was dumbo's art under the bridge festival. what a lovely excuse to go back to dumbo with my camera (as if i needed one).
that pile of garbage is actually a human sculpture. the artist, chin chin yang, is actually standing inside- with a sign encouraging people to decorate him, turing pollution into art.
one of the best things about this festival is that it is so interactive, there are all sorts of ways that people can jump in and create their own art.
and there were even some representatives of the fiber arts. there were quite a few of these crocheted people throughout.
i couldn't help but be reminded of lindsey when i saw this one (there's an infamous picture from college of lindsey pretending to be run over by a car (of course hers had much more dramatic flair)).
and this piece, river's edge by john monteith- created a sea of oyster shells in the midst of the cobblestone. it certainly smelled like the seaside.
it was a wonderful afternoon. can't wait to see what they come up with next year.
