The Art of a Sign

There are hundreds of Hefty Trash bags who sacrificed their twisty-ties and need for closure for this work of art. I think it appeared a couple of weeks ago, it’s a few doors down from the famed Blue Bodega. I don’t what it’s really trying to say, it mimics something in bloom and there is what looks like an angel. Maybe it is meant to comment on Christmas, it looks like a tree and the angel is on top. It uses the sign—the pole the sign is on, there are slots to attach the sign and the twisty-ties are inserted into those slots—and yet the purpose of the sign—the no parking, the pick up after your dog—remains unobstructed. Turning it into art as well has not prevented anyone from ignoring the sign.
