British artist Damien Hirst has been in the news lately for selling his artwork for record high prices, as the American economy goes down the toilet. Last year he had an installation in one of my favorite NYC buildings (and modernists dream) LEVER HOUSE, on Park Avenue. He also has a visible woman towering over the courtyard like an alien from a 1950s science fiction movie. Snapped a few pics before eating Thanksgiving diner across the street, then gave thanks that mad geniuses like him are still freaking people out with their art.
