Artist Jay Shells Visits Washington Heights: Dogs Owners On Notice
Artist Jay Shells, maybe better known as the man behind the 'subway etiquette' project, has undertaken a new campaign targeting dog poop, installing large, colorful, hand-painted posters street side, reminding people to "clean up after your dog!"
Last night, Shells went up to 173rd Street, on the corner of Fort Washington Avenue in Washington Heights, to shape up dog owners in the area. He explained his decision to visit Wahi at the suggestion of Gothamist commenters, who requested their own display after Gothamist featured the original dog poop poster installed on 14th Street. Posters now reside on 14th Street, 173rd Street and 1st Avenue between 4th and 5th streets.
In addition to an admonition to clean up after your dog, plastic baggies (bio-degradable!) are available from an attached roll to help make the poo-poo pickup more convenient.
New York City's Sh*t and Piss War rages on. Whose side are you on?
Shells told NYC The Blog his next stop will be Bed-Stuy. See last nights finished product below.
