My blue Manhattan



When you see the new window display that went up yesterday at the Morrison Hotel Gallery on the Bowery, you'll figure someone is having a little fun with all of us...






A gallery worker told a tourist out front that this was simply "the artist's statement," and that she did not know what it meant. Uh-huh.

And, if you don't know already, the artist is Ryan Adams.

i am not sure what to make of this. it seems like something a child would do. maybe that's intentional? is it ironic?

I think it's pretty funny.

I'm confused...it would make more sense to say "The Bowery is for bums, not Designer Ramen" but maybe I'm missing the point entirely.

Oh - and I wore pink today in your honor.

Ha! Thanks Goggla! I'll get a photo of you at the Mars Bar!

I'll be the one doing watermelon vodka jello shots, playing the greatest hits of Ryan Adams back-to-back on the juke.

Wow! If he is an artist, I have some great stuff on the fridge that he should check out.. Waste of paint, I hope he used acrylics, and left to oils to the real artists.

I am stunned that the gallery worker said she didn't know what it meant. I thought we had higher than usual unemployment, but clearly there is a job for everyone.
