A Better Use For Beanie Babies: Road Kill Art By L. Mylott Manning
ROAD KILL STUFFED ANIMALS by L. Mylott Manning
As a part of the Art In Odd Places exhibition, NY artist L. Mylott Manning has placed mutilated stuffed animals (not actual 'beanie babies', by the way.... I don't want to get sued by TY) soaked in dirty water at various 14th Street locations.
The fabric carcasses resemble the aftermath of real animals that have been hit by a vehicle but delve further into psychological symbolism as the viewers realize the uncannily realistic animals are made out of cloth.
Take a look at some of the reactions from passers by.
Where and when?
Time and Location: Saturday, October 11, 18, 25 (12-4pm). 14th Street between University Place & Broadway; between Third & Sixth Avenues; between Ninth &Tenth Avenues.
