Beuys is dead/lives

Whatever.

Spotted this afternoon on West 22nd Street, which is lined with a section of Josef Beuys's "7000 Eichen" [note basalt column and barely-visible trunk of young oak tree in photo; also, a very tot bicycle and a detail of a Paul Richard conceptual installation visible on a pole beyond].

man, NY looks dirty and depraved in this picture. But someone who didn't know how to spell Beuys' name still knew about his work - and cared to leave a message to the world about that... first world moves, man.
