Sorry kids, no more skateboarding on the Picasso!

    Well that was fast. Six days after we posted on people skateboarding on the Chicago Picasso statue the city erected a fence around it.




    See how nice, efficient and effective it is to have a Mayor who is powerful and who understands culture?

    Thank you to Marc Boxerman for spying the fence, photographing it and sending it in. (I'm in Los Angeles today.)

    What do you think? Since we could remake this big Cor-ten steel monster from the original maquette and blueprints, should people be allowed to play on and skateboard on the Picasso?

    Update 5/4: Read the comments to see what's really going on. (Picasso, the Spaniard, meets Cinco de Mayo in Chicago.) And here's a photo of the fence around the pool in Daley Plaza to which the commenter "t" refers.
