From the NY Post:
Oddball art may be coming to your neighborhood.
The Department of Transportation and local artists yesterday revealed the first two of five new "street art" exhibits that will pop up in public spaces across the city.
An abstract sculpture made of plywood and resembling a stack of children's building blocks and star-shaped toys was set up in the East Tremont neighborhood of The Bronx.
And in Red Hook, Brooklyn, 10 outdoor seats made of old wine barrels with 14-foot-high attached birdhouses were placed in an open space near Columbia and Halleck streets.
In the next several months, three more sculptures will go up, on the Upper West Side, near Queens Plaza, and in Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn.
