In other news...an aspiring artist named Jennifer Marsh decided to transform an abandoned gas station into a public work of art. It's a pretty neat idea. :) This is taken from the article on Foxnews.com:
"I really tried to find a good balance of art and politics. I don't want it to be just a political statement. And I don't want it to just be a sculpture," said the 27-year-old Marsh, who is finishing her master of fine arts degree at Syracuse University.
"I wanted to startle people so they would stop and think about it (oil) ... and be inspired to make up their own opinions about the situation and how it has affected their community," she said.
With the help of professional and amateur artists from 15 countries and more than 2,500 grade-school students in 29 states, Marsh covered the 50-year-old former Citgo station — pumps, light stands, signs and all — with more than 3,000 fiber panels that are crocheted, knitted, quilted or stitched together.
Some of the more imaginative panels are made with the labels from plastic beverage containers, plastic shopping bags and plastic six-pack carriers — all petroleum products.
A nearby kiosk explains the project — called WRAP, for World Reclamation Art Project.
