Sweater #221


In addition to the previous sweater, this sweater was also placed in Old Town Scottsdale along the art walk path.  The situated placement on a fire hydrant seems extremely appealing as the sweater happened to be placed outside of a prominent art gallery that shows work by artists from both LA and New York.  As a prominent emblem of the capitalist foundation of the art market, placing this sweater here acts as a symbol in direct opposition to this system that we have created to view, appreciate and consume art.  The fire hydrant just seems very fitting as it is a public safety mechanism, similar to the notion that art doesn’t have to be consumed or a part  of a market driven system to have meaning, impact and value.
