Starchitecture Art in Chelsea; Politicians Target Brooklyn Tower

Joey Arak

CHELSEA—See the piece of artwork to the right? Please do click on it to blow it up in size. It’s entitled Starchitects, and it’s a ballpoint-on-paper work from Brooklyn artist Butt Johnson (short for Buttington?). This piece is currently on display at Chelsea’s CRG Gallery, and we’re no art critics, but we think there may be a Tower of Babel thing going on. Our pal Butt tells us only three ballpoint pens were hurt in the making of this madness. Needs more undulation. [CRG Gallery]
