Water Works. (Even When It Doesn't.)
Say what you will about NYC Waterfalls, at least it has people talking about public art. Brownstoner had an online panic attack last week when they were driving to work and saw that the Waterfalls were turned off. I've heard more than one person say how the piece has grown on them. Almost none of them from the art world. But that's OK. Hell, it might even be better this way. I wasn't a fan of The Gates, but it got the conversation rolling. Actually, my favorite story was a bar fight a friend witnessed because two old timers at a bar were arguing about whether or not The Gates was art. (IMO it was art. It just wasn't very good art.) Anyway, rage on.
