Gandhiwarmer


This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Gandhiwarmer event at Union Square which was a memorial to honor the great peacemaker on the anniversary of his death. There was sitar music, rose petals, and hats and scarves for those in need. The event was conceived by an old peer from art school, Tippy Tippens. Personally this proved one of the better interactions with public sculpture I've seen of late. Despite the frigid temps their was much warmth in the air. For more pics and details head over to the official site.

Thank God someone finally did that...it makes me cringe to walk past Ghandi on a cold day.

Gandhi looks like a trendy hipster. I'll take a Giacometti. Excellent resale value.
