The NYC cab dresses flowers for the fall

Public art challenges the bland yellow surfaces of the city's cabs in what I personally think is a bold attempt to use a symbol that operates on the rapport of juvenile and feminine representation. Standing on the curb and observing it pass by, it's not really the way I think of it then and there.

NYC's initiative of Garden in Transit is promoted as a
community-based project.

two-extra notions:
- the colors are bold and beautiful
- the male-cab drivers, and the suit-jacketed business men: do they have some sort of sexual (as in gender) consciousness to this?
