As a public artist here in Houston and America, I'm always looking for examples of fine art on our streets. In this post, I describe such a work.
In this interactive work at the corner of Main & Binz in Houston, motorists are asked to reimagine the contours of this traffic median by running their cars and trucks into the median.
Please also notice there is a banana on the median. The banana speaks meaningfully and with urgency (before the banana spoils) to the common question in our society of "How did that get there?
Here is my artist's statement.
Please follow me on Instagram. My user name is Neil_Aquino. Please read all of NeilAquino.com. Please like my artist page on Facebook. If you've seen a guy walking around Houston with a sign about the value of everyday life, that quite possibly was me.
