“When I purchased this everybody was happy, they said finally the gas station is going to go, and now everybody thinks the gas station is beautiful,” Shvo told WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman.

This inaugural exhibition is seen at the former Getty gas station in West Chelsea. The work is the largest collection of its kind to ever be shown publicly in an outdoor setting.
