I’ve been reading about the orange gates that were recently put up as a modern art exhibition in New York City’s Central Park. There were a few pieces on the web about it, people complaining, the usual. Then a “60 Minutes” piece on Sunday, largely focusing on the eccentricity of the creators.
I like the gates, I always think it’s great to have art that makes you question your environment or think about things in a new way. However, it sure seems like these gates were inspired by something else, and it would have been nice to see the source credited by the creators.
