It is amazing how creative graffiti has become. Take for example this water graffiti art project as reported by PSFK. Antonin Fourneau,
a French digital artist announced a collaboration with faucet maker
Grohe on new products. To mark the occasion at a New York City event in
Grohe’s showroom, Fourneau brought his water graffiti wall and let
visitors create some of their own artwork (hydro tagging?). PSFK spoke
with Fourneau who eplained that the original inspiration for the project
came on a trip to China where he witnessed a man painting on the

Time Warner Cable (who is my service provider) has dropped Ovation and has not replaced it with any other arts network. Of course they did not lower my bill to reflect the lower value TWC service now means to me. Nor did they lower my cable bill to reflect the supposed savings TWC enjoys carrying one less network. Dropping a network like Ovation which connects us to art globally is not only bad business, it alienates those of us who do not view sports and yet has to pay for all those sports networks' carriage fees on Time Warner Cable. I am so looking forward to inviting FIOS to wire our building....
On the evening of Grand Central Terminal’s 100th birthday, 135 Improv Everywhere participants staged a surprise performance in the grand windows on the terminal’s west side.

This project took place at the invitation of MTA Arts for Transit as part of the centennial celebration of Grand Central Terminal.
