Art Outlet

I saw this and laughed out loud. The plywood conceals some interior renovation going on. Being inclined towards word play, I thought: with the J.C. Museum closing its doors, Street Art offers local an artists an affordable outlet (okay, let’s move on). I’m not sure how intentional the child like outline of the electrical outlet was, but the placement on the wood is amusing. Street art at its best is funny; maybe that was its big break from graffiti artists of yore. This reminds me of a tuxedo t-shirt. As functional as a tattoo, yet it represents what makes modern society run – electricity. But seriously, who has a plug this big?
