Yesterday ScoutingNY spotted the odd sculpture above in the tiny triangular Macri Park at Metropolitan and the BQE near the Lorimer stop, a massive monument to… fallen shopping carts? A little research reveals that the cement-embedded Home Depot cart filled with painted six-packs marks the latest iteration of street artist Specter‘s ongoing Canner Tribute series. Check out another view after the jump.
You may have seen Specter’s work most recently earlier this month at the Re:Form School show in Little Italy, where he created a mural on a support made of old textbook bindings. Meanwhile the most recent foray into shopping cart street art that springs to mind is TrustoCorp’s monument to credit card debt that showed up in Soho back in May. Shopping carts: loaded with artistic potentialities. (Curbed)
