Have you seen the temporary art installation that popped up yesterday in the median on 4th Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets?

Why Don't We Have A Monorail Connecting Manhattan To Brooklyn?
.....Gressel and other judges selected artist Emily Weiskopf for the Fourth Avenue public art project because her work wouldn't get lost on the bustling strip.
"It's in the middle of a really busy thoroughfare on the street," Gressel said. "It's not a great place to stop and contemplate a smaller work. It demands something big and bold."
