Anybody who's serious about public art should watch this . . . NOT. It's a pretty unintentionally hilarious segment on public art by, um, Andy Rooney. God help him. He's talking about painted cows. No wonder the old boy doesn't like art in his square. You'll be shocked to learn that he didn't like Richard Serra's Tilted Arc.
Every year in the week before Tribute in Light appears I can see them testing the lights from my window in Cobble Hill. I was happy to see that The City Room in the Times wrote a little piece about the yearly retooling of the lights. The piece also goes on to talk about the need for financing that has arisen as the lmdc funding winds down. The best part, however, is saved for last . . . the comments section. The healing continues. Amen.
