The Somerville Gates
The Somerville Gates will be available in Somerville, Massachusetts until the cleaning lady comes. This helpful comparison of the two masterpieces, including statistics on the years it took to make (26 to .002) and the number of feline visitors (0 to 1).
Amazingly this work of art was accomplished with only $3.50, slightly less than $29 million it took to erect The Gates in Central Park.

Update: Looks like the photos are gone. From the beginning, it stated they would be up
until the cleaning lady comes and apparently she has. I wish I had saved a few more of the photos. Oh well, at least now we have The Crackers to look at.
Update: Well the Somerville Gates really were really at Somerville City Hall yesterday. Turns out he received more than four million hits and that's why the photos had to be taken down. The Boston Globe has an article about them and how museums are now interested in displaying his work.
Update: I put up a slideshow (Flash 7 required) of as many of the photos as I could find so people who could see them who hadn't. I'll keep them up as long as possible, but I imagine
the cleaning lady might come visit me before long too. (SlideShowPro is awesome by the way.)
