NEW YORK (WLNY) – Ever see a herd of sheep in the city?
Well, you’re about to.
Called Sheep Station, real estate developer Michael Shvo’s public art program is shocking folks in Chelsea. TV 10-55’s Alex Denis reports.
“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.
A guard is on site 24/7 to keep watch over the sheep which are the work of the late French artist François-Xavier Lalanne.
