"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

Trump Floats In Gowanus This Sunday Morning

 
Now here is a sight one does not see every day in Gowanus.  Trump floating on the polluted waters of everyone's favorite Superfund.
The photos above were taken by a PMFA reader, this Sunday morning.  According to the reader:
"It looked like he was put there not too long before because goo was just starting to collect among the snakes. By this afternoon, he’ll be looking really gross! Looks like he’s anchored because he’s not moving despite the Gowanus flowing around him this morning. I have no idea how he got there."

Social commentary, art installation as part of Gowanus Open Studios...we would love to find out who is  behind this presidential float and what its intended message is. Does anyone know?

Instead of getting upset look at it as an art installation - open to your own interpretation. What is the meaning of the snakes? Why is trump depicted angry? what was the decision to stage the installation in the gowanus canal?
Look for the art instead of assuming offense.
