"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Ellis G. Was Here!

(picture taken right off Smith On September 26)

Nobody does silhouettes better than Ellis Gallagher, the Brooklynite behind the truly ephemeral art works in chalk that pop up here and there in the neighborhood. This time he "tagged" a wall right off Smith. Neat! I love his work.

Ellis G's work is amazing. I saw a clip of him chalking out the shadows and it's strange how something so simple can be inspiring to many other people. His art makes you stop and think just by outlining objects we don't necessarily notice. It's worth your time to see his work....genius!
