Branching out at the Brant Foundation



EVG reader Steph shared these photos today... showing workers loading in a shipment of birch tree branches (thank you comments!) at the under-renovation future home of the Brant Foundation on Sixth Street between Avenue A and First Avenue...



The Brant Foundation's EV outpost, which will house Peter M. Brant's permanent art collection, will reportedly open this spring.

I think these are birch tree branches and not trees, looks like they are anchored in some sort of weighted holder. Perhaps this is a temporary installation for an opening party.

@10:24, you're probably right, I have seen these being shipped in buildings and galleries in the High Line area. They are just for ornamental use.

So it begins, all signs point to this gallery being a place for starfucking and keeping out and vexing the public. Make way for the limos and Ubers.

Can you say fire hazard? At summer camp we always used birch bark to start our little campfires. They better put up some no smoking signs ASAP.
