Chelsea’s gallery district is full of groundbreaking art, coffee-swilling hipsters and of-the-minute restaurants….but a Sheep’s Station?
Getty Station, on the corner of 10th Ave. and 24th St. is a public art program based at this former filling station. It was conceived by real estate developer and art collector Michael Shvo to bring outdoor exhibitions to a broad audience in the center of the High Line arts district.
With this piece, Schvo and the Paul Kasmin gallery are reimagining pieces of the late French artist Francois-Xavier Lalanne. Twenty-five sheep are scattered among the gas pumps overlooking 10th Avenue–enclosed by a white picket fence. (So what else would you expect?)
The site will ultimately will be transformed into luxury residences, but the Getty Station will feature different exhibitions for extended periods of time canadian pharmacy online viagra during the construction period. Ultimately, the station will be somehow incorporated permanently into the future building.
The exhibit is on until October 20th, so head out to Chelsea and check it out.
Have a great weekend!
