Subway Gallery

For our latest Improv Everywhere mission, we created an art gallery opening on a subway platform!
The gallery had a cellist,
a coat rack and a bar!
Placards were posted next to objects in the station, immediately turning them into works of art. 
Check out the video to see the gallery and some fun reactions!

Hahahaa. Passers-by must have been thinking that artists are getting loopier and loopier as time goes on. ANYTHING is art these days.

Oh how I wish I lived in NY! My boyfriend and I did San Francisco's version of Pants-less Saturday and it was so fun (our pics are here: http://fillyourwell.blogspot.com/2009/01/no-pants-saturday.html), but San Franciscan's don't really get the improv part and mostly did it to be scandalous.
