They all have the same Obama quote.
They are ads for the School of Visual Arts.

  1. I like your explanation. Kevin took a picture of the Plant one during his visit.

  2. Hmmmm, veddy intedesteeng. I went to the School of Visual arts way back in the late '70s. Also I wish I could find a photo somewhere online of its late, great founder, Silas Rhodes, in a B&W photo standing beside probably the largest taxidermed raven anyone has ever seen. Used to be in his office, perched atop a brass stand. He died two years ago in his home in Katonah, NY which boasts its own ghost-hunting group, the Katonah Paranormal Society. lotsa places up around there to explore, too, not the least of which is Magnetic Mine Road in not-that-far-away sleepy, little Croton-On-Hudson, long held to be a site of many paranormal sightings. Cheers!

    An auspicious 2010 to you again, James,
