Greener Grass

If you've ever ridden in the car with me for any distance, you've probably heard me bitch about abandoned buildings..."Just tear them down! Plant some trees!"

In NYC, a gas station has been transformed into a sheep pasture as a "pop-up landscape". The creation by art collector Michael Shvo and the Paul Kasmin Gallery has been dubbed an urban intervention.
The station, which I presume was non-functional and abandoned, will host a new public art program in the Chelsea neighborhood, and will showcase rotating exhibitions.

I'm thrilled by this. Let's do this America — new uses for ugly abandoned structures. Frivolity and silliness approved!
