Melting Middle Class


The middle class is melting today -- even faster than “DEMOCRACY,” Ligorano-Reese's last ice sculpture, at Jim Kempner Fine Art, 501 West 23 Street, New York (you can see the work till about 8pm tonight).

I asked the artists whether the melting middle class was a good thing or not: wouldn't that heighten the contradictions? They couldn't go there ...

I arrived just in time to take this shot, "ass backward" as Nora Ligorano noted: "all that will be left is the ass."

It looked like the "M" would hang on till morning, Marshall Reese told Web Log at Jacket 2.
