Fourth Avenue Freeze Out

I know they evicted people and knocked a building down at this site. Then the artist that sold her soul to the developers put up her trademark flowers and inane words like "Thank you!" on the wall. On this one she actually wrote "What is humility?"

Don't ask a developer! Or perhaps that was a meditation for herself to make her feel better for putting a folksy face on glass and steel to come. By the way most of the "luxury" condo around 4th avenue have no charm and look like NYU dorms in the east village, which, my "favorite" artist has also adorned their wrecking walls with her inanity.

Anyway, back to Fourth Ave. It looks like the big plans fell through and now this piece of property at the toney local of fourth avenue and 7th Street is for sale and her artwork is the legacy of hope of the year 2008.

Read and see the art & bad poetry about dead revolutionary war soldiers done by this very same clueless artist on 3rd Street and Bond as a ploy to want to live there here.

Thanks FIB for pointing something out that has bothered me for a while. This artist got involved with a mutual contact in a sneaky way. When I called her on it she played dodge ball and then dismissed me. She's lost my trust as a community member and arts professional.

It's clear that she really doesn't know what she is representing to the existing people that live in the community. She is just having fun painting easy flowers outdoors and writing "THANK YOU!" (to who?) everywhere..curious to know how much she got paid..i am sure not much....
