Second Avenue Art Project

It's possible that not everything you see in the East Village is an art project, but it's darn hard to tell what isn't!

I was walking around Second Avenue yesterday, when I saw this:

Wood sculpture with nail.

How else could you describe two pieces of wood lashed to a lamppost, with a single nail attached? There's a message here, waiting to be deciphered!

Here's a close-up:

Message waiting to be deciphered.

What is it saying? What is the artist trying to tell us? Maybe it's a statement about rebuilding, after the fire.

East Village art is ambiguous and transitory, and always cool!

  1. that might also be a construction protector for the lamp post, so when you hit it with your back hoe, you hit, and damage, the wood and not the lamp post.
