That's Shvo Artsy

The developer whose name we love to butcher, Michael Shvo, was already getting all creative with the Getty station he bought at 239 Tenth Avenue, between 24th and 25th streets. He planted trees all 'round it, which are indubitably way better-looking than plywood, but now he's one-upping himself on the "beautifying construction" front. Shvo, who is also an art collector, is going to use the construction site as a showcase for public art, with the first show running from September 16 till October 20. Called "Sheep Station," it will include 25 of late French artist Francois-Xavier Lalanne's surrealist sculpted, well, sheep. Apparently, when the site is done getting condo-ified, past exhibitions and other creative things will also be incorporated. [NYT; recent photo of the site, awaiting sheep, via CurbedWire Inbox]
