D.U.M.B.O.

This past weekend Katie and I went to D.U.M.B.O. (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) for Hell House and the DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival. Since we weren't allowed to take pictures in Hell House, I'll share the highlights of the arts festival.




















Katrina graffiti exhibit made even creepier by the addition of upbeat New Orleans jazz











Starving homeless people watched as Brooklyn art enthusiasts enjoyed a commentary on America's obesity epidemic: cupcakes in the shape of chalk outlines. Ah hah hah hah hah haaaaaa... poverty.








interactive art: katie prepares for the "Assisted Street Crossing" exhibit






























































popcorn maker dispersing popcorn onto the warehouse floor. as everybody walks around it, trying to figure it out, more homeless people's mouths' water. silly homeless people! trix are for kids!









can you guess what this piece is made of?












i'll give you a hint: it starts with "T" and it ends with "oast"











more interactive art! i think this one was called: "tire swing"
















your guess is as good as mine on this one.

























what do you do when a yarn creature with its yarn cat sits next to you? if you're this smooth guy, you hit on it.










not all art is fun: a working carousel that you can't ride.











ah, this picture reminds me of Norfolk. only, where I come from the shoes were real. and they were hung for darker reasons than art.










art on a truck! with a fake squirrel monkey!
