TIME WARNER STENCILS THE BOWERY
Related to the last post, does it bother you that Time Warner cannot face penalty for this recent corporate graffiti campaign. If The DOB sign enforcement unit can figure out who was responsible for the execution, they might face a small fine. Does it bother you that the people who stenciled these were probably local artists who had worked on the street and were willing to face arrest for the 300 or so dollars a night? Does it also bother you that these individuals might face serious jail time if they were caught doing their own work? It does me.VIA Animal NY
Time Warner stenciled their branding up the Ave from the New Museum on Bowery (and elsewhere) to promote some invite-only party they’re throwing tonight for a launch of their fancy, pricey “signature” package of cable services. Appropriately, the stencils are outside of Whole Foods, marketing directly to the sort of people who pay too much for cheese.
